Another Great Forgotten Hits Give-Away!!!

And winning couldn't be easier or more fun!!!  

Our Forgotten Hits Buddy Bill Buster and his crackerjack sound production team just sent us copies of two of their latest efforts to give away to some of our lucky Forgotten Hits Readers:

 Hard To Find Jukebox Classics 1960-64: 
30 Amazing Stereo Hits (Hit Parade #12317)

Three Decades Of Classic Novelty Hits 
(Complete 60s #13603)

The sound quality on these cd's is absolutely incredible.   (I've already played the  "Hard To Find Jukebox Classics, 1960 - 64 30 Amazing Stereo Hits" through several times in my car and let me tell you, the sound quality just doesn't get any better than this. Start to finish, this is a knock-out listening experience ... especially when you crank it up to high volume!)  

In fact, you can listen to some EXCELLENT sound clips from both these hot new releases on the Eric Records website at ... and while you’re there, also check out all the other cool releases available from these two import labels.

Hit Parade Records' "Hard To Find Jukebox Classics, 1960 – 64: 30 Amazing Stereo Hits" includes 18 new and rare stereo debuts of iconic hits like "Be My Baby", "He's So Fine", "Chapel Of Love", "The Loco-Motion", "Hey Baby", "California Sun", "Louie Louie", "Little Children", "As Tears Go By", "Dawn", "Limbo Rock", "Harlem Nocturne", "Yeh Yeh" and 17 other great tracks. The song selection runs the full spectrum of '60's music.    

And Complete 60s' "Three Decades of Classic Novelty Hits" is just as good, featuring hard-to-find on CD titles like "I Taut I Taw A Puddy Tat" by the incomparable Mel Blanc, "The Battle Of Kookamonga" by Homer and Jethro, "Hot Rod Lincoln" by Charlie Ryan, "The Blob" (an early soundtrack smash by Burt Bacharach, performed by The Five Blobs!), "On Top Of Spaghetti" by Tom Glazer and the Do-Re-Mi Children's Chorus, "We Love You Beatles" by The Carefrees (in crystal-clear sound for perhaps the first time ever!), the stereo debut of "Surfin' Bird" by The Trashmen (yes, someone else did this song before Peter Griffin sang it on "The Family Guy"! ), the recently-discussed "I Love Onions" by Susan Christie and the original Stars on 45 #1 Medley, along with 19 others ... all presented in exceptional sound quality (which is the Eric Records way!)  

And, coming in May ... Eric Records will be releasing the latest installments of their "Hard To Find 45's on CD" series, Volumes 15 & 16, featuring 80s Essentials (and Beyond).  We can hardly wait for these ... I have the complete collection of these great Eric titles!  (Keep watching Forgotten Hits for further announcements!)

There is ALWAYS good stuff available from Eric Records and their import labels!  (By the way, have you noticed how they’ve practically cornered the market on INSTRUMENTALS?  We'll have more on that in an upcoming email!)

Want a crack at winning one of these two new releases? 

Here's all you gotta do:

Visit the Eric Records website at ... 

Browse around and you'll find dozens of OTHER great titles to help fill out your collection ... 

And then send me an email (at with "Eric Giveaway" in the subject line, letting us know which three titles of the nearly 60 listed you'd be most anxious to add to your collection.  

Eric Records wants to know which of these titles press the hot button of our Forgotten Hits Oldies Nation ... and this will allows us to give the label some feedback about what you guys think are their most appealing titles as well as the direction they might most want to focus on for future releases.  

And check this out ... this is the PERFECT time to buy!  

For a limited time only, the Eric Records website is running a special offer where if you buy three CD's, you'll also get your choice of a fourth, special promotional CD from their selected catalog for free!  

So here's how you win ...

Simply by telling us about your visit to the site (and listing your choices for the three most desirable titles), you'll be entered to win one of these two hot new releases we've got to give away ... "Hard To Find Jukebox Classics, 1960 – 64: 30 Amazing Stereo Hits" or "Three Decades of Classic Novelty Hits".  (Let us know your title preference ... due to the number of responses we may receive, we can't promise that we'll be able to award your first choice ... but we will do our best to do so.)  NOTE:   You don't actually have to BUY these titles ... just send me the list of the ones you'd be most likely to purchase and you're automatically entered in our drawing.  (Of course we're hoping that once you visit the site and see the great selection it has to offer, you will find something you like and place an order ... whether it be one cd or a dozen ... but you don't have to buy three CD's in order to qualify for our FH give-away.)    

BETTER YETIf you happen to find that you do want to take advantage of this special offer ... and actually DO buy a three-pack of CD's from the site (and get your free promotional CD as a bonus), send us your order number (starts with #177xx) as well as the titles of the three CD's you purchased and you'll be entered to win a free copy of BOTH of these hot new titles.

Supplies are limited ... and your chances of winning will be determined by the number of responses we get.  (Purchasing CD's from the site doesn't improve your chances of winning ... but it DOES give you the chance to win BOTH of these great new releases instead of just one or the other.)  

Send us your emails showing your three favorites (or the three you purchased) and we'll enter you in this fun new drawing.  We'll announce the winners by the end of April.  (Deadline for entries is April 21st so visit the Eric Records Website and send in your entries NOW!!!)

Good Luck!
