Good Ol' Fashioned Love by The Overtones (CD)

The Overtones are the UK's hottest new vocal harmony group, specialising in repertoire from the 50's and 60's as well as nostalgic sounding brand new songs. Discovered in London whilst rehearsing during a tea break from their painting and decorating work they were snapped up for a record deal and the album Good Ol' Fashioned Love is the result.

It is packed with covers of classic doo-wop tracks like "Come Back My Love", "In The Still Of The Night", "Sh-Boom", "For The Longest Time" and "Blue Moon" as well as new songs like "Gambling Man", "Caroline" and the title track itself that were either written for or by the boys themselves.

CD Tracks:

1. Sh Boom (Life Could Be A Dream)

2. Gambling Man

3. Come Back My Love

4. Carolyn

5. The Longest Time

6. Good Ol' Fashioned Love

7. Blue Moon

8. Have I Told You Lately That I Love You

9. In The Still Of The Night

10. Don't Make Me Over

11. Goodnight Sweetheart, Goodnight

12. Why Do Fools Fall In Love

This is not my usual style of music but I really enjoyed this vocal harmony group's album. It has some classic songs on that I remember listening to with my dad along with some songs that were orginals from the boys.A great album to listen to if you like music from the 50-60's.

I would recommend to all.I give the album 4 stars!
