Classics is is a perfectly respectable, and perhaps definitive collection of John Conlee's hits and best tunes. There are 22 cuts total, 18 of which come from his catalog, and three of which are new songs. What sets this apart from everything else out there is that the tunes in this set have been digitally remastered for excellent sound. ~ Thom Jurek
