If you are like me and enjoy early to mid 50's pop then in all likelihood you are at least familiar with the Fontane Sisters. Most people would recall the groups two Top Ten hits from that era. "Hearts of Stone" climbed all the way to the top of the Billboard charts in 1955 and the bouncy "Seventeen" was a number three smash later that same year. Love that tune! What many people fail to realize is that the Fontane Sisters managed to reel off a string of two dozen hits in the seven year period from 1951-1957. For a good many years most of these songs were extremely difficult to find. Now Remember records which appears to be based in Portugal of all places has released "The Fontane Sisters: Their Greatest Hits". This terrific new disc presents 25 of the girls best and brightest tunes from back in the day. For me this one was a real find!
"The Fontane Sisters: Their Greatest Hits" offers up nearly all of the groups charted singles from their days at both RCA Victor and Dot. I must admit that I enjoyed them all. From the early part of the decade enjoy the Top 20 hits "Tennessee Waltz" as well as the Hank Williams' classic "Cold Cold Heart". I was also partial to "Daddy-O" and most especially to the Sisters rendition of the great Drifters hit "Adorable". Finally, I would like to recommend to you both "Most of All" and "If I Could Be With You (One Hour Tonight)". Although neither song ever cracked the Billboard Hot 100 they proved to be highly enjoyable nonetheless.
"The Fontane Sisters: Their Greatest Hits" comes with a couple of pages of informative liner notes and the remastering job is dandy. Fans of group harmony should certainly latch onto this one! Recommended!
