REVIEW

April 13, 2003

Another very enjoyable set of pop tunes by The Peanuts. But once again this is a repackaging of songs that appear on many of the other Peanuts CD's on this site. From research done by both myself and Sam Scali it would seem the songs of this popular duo get repackaged every few years as greatest hits type collections or yet another box set. However, this particular CD is very enjoyable with many familiar tunes and a few sung partially in English and a few sung in Italian. Their rendiotion of the Rick Nelson song "Hello Mary Lou" reinforces the Japanese sterotype that Japanese people can't pronounce the letter L. In all the CD's where the sing this song it always comes out "Herro Mary Roo"
