Billy J. Kramer with The Dakotas- Do You Want To Know A Secret \The EMI Years 1963-1983\ 4 CD Box





2009 four CD set from one of the most popular bands to emerge from the '60s British Invasion movement that the Beatles kickstarted. Early in 1963, the merging of the Liverpool vocalist, Billy J. Kramer, with the Manchester group, the Dakotas, was among Brian Epstein's most inspired moves. It led to a succession of hit records, including three #1s, and several songs that have become golden oldies and are as familiar today as there were in the 1960s. This mammoth collection of over 120 tracks features their EMI recordings in those crucial years, and includes all the singles, all the album tracks (both UK and U.S.), and many unreleased performances. The unearthed gems include an excellent version of Randy Newman's 'Bet No One Ever Hurt This Bad', which equals any of the hit singles. EMI.
