Billy J. Kramer with The Dakotas - Little Children & I'll Keep You Satisfied (1964)

Billy J. Kramer with The Dakotas - Little Children & I'll Keep You Satisfied (1964)



This Collectables reissue features two albums released in 1964 on the Imperial label by British invasion band Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas. Although their reign on the pop charts would be extremely short, they managed to score a few memorable hits. The albums Little Children (also the title of their first hit single in the U.S.) and I'll Keep You Satisfied include several Lennon/McCartney-penned songs: "Bad to Me" (another hit), "Do You Want to Know a Secret," and "I Call Your Name," along with cover versions of "Da Doo Ron Ron," "Great Balls of Fire," and "The Twelfth of Never." While this is a fine reissue, The Best of Billy J. Kramer on EMI would probably be a better purchase for anyone but the most ardent Merseybeat fan.

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.
