Again, this 2 CD set is made of up more singles put out by The Peanuts. Disc 1 contains the "A" sides and Disc 2 contains the "B" sides. This is the way all 4 volumes are handled. There are no songs here from "Mothra". Volume 3 here is back to 18 tracks per disc. The running time is longer than the previous two versions with both discs coming in at over 50 minutes each. These discs have a couple of Christmas tunes, a few interesting covers of US and British tunes and a bunch of Italian songs.
I have always enjoyed the singing and harmonies of these women in the "Mothra films which is why I sought out more CD's by them. The songs on this CD are a mixture of Japanese, Japanese with some English, some English and possibly a few other languages. I find their music fun and relaxing to listen to and some of the cover versions of US pop hits can be amusing.
If you like soft pop from the 50's & 60's then you may enjoy this CD. It's the kind of soft pop done by U.S. artists before the British Invasion of the mid 60's. I enjoyed this CD as well as the others on this site. One word of warning, several of the songs are repeated on more than one CD on this site. None of these four (4) volumes has any repeated tracks.
