Continental Records Overall Rating:  Excellent / April 2004

I will keep the CD since there are a few tracks on it that I did not own
previously, besides, I fully support your site as a whole, having been a
customer back in the late '90's purchasing many items I could not find
anywhere else on earth. Not only is your selection incredible for the
extreme collector, but even your links are outstanding. So although I was
disappointed, after all is said and done, I still have great faith in the
work and service that you provide.

Just to let you know that the above item arrived safely. Thank you. 

Anthony Carey / Leicester England / March 2004

Hi Neil,
Are you kidding? NO WAY!
I'm KEEPING this CD, it's great!
Thanx so much for sending it!
At first, I WAS annoyed that you took it upon yourself to substitute this
one for the one I ordered, but after I investigated further, I was compelled
to open the disc and see if it was true that you had the original 96 Tears
NOT taken from a vinyl LP.
The disc you sent was made in Germany and it sounds terrific.

Now onto the Senator Bobby recording of "Wild Thing," which is how this
whole thing started.
You seem to have it on two separate titles, a "Liberty Bell" title below,
and perhaps another that may or may not be available.
Can you recommend which title I should purchase for that song, and how much
it will cost now that I'm a returning customer?

Anthony Gargiulo / New York NY / March 2004

My CD arrived and everything is great! Love the CD, these songs are so hard to find. Thank you so much!

I received the copy of "Joy to the World" today.  Thanks for such quick service.  My wife, Joy, is celebrating her 45th birthday this weekend.  We try to give each other unusual and thoughful gifts each year.  I thought a "45" on her 45th would be perfect.  And I thought the title "Joy to the World" was perfect for her.  Thanks for helping me out on this!

I am very happy with this CD. I got my CD today. It is just what I have been looking for. And the fact that it had to come a long way, it still did not take all that long to get here and I paid the least in shipping. I am very happy. Thank you.

My records were in great shape,actually one was an original press with  label error listing same song on both sides.

oh  yes something else,too bad you didn`t have clips of some of the songs,  that would be cool.

Take care

Couldn't believe my eyes when my mum bought the parcel in from the mailbox so needless to say you have one very very happy customer at the bottom of the

Receiving these was just great and so far am cruising through the music and thoroughly wrapped with the cd's.

To think that I could have had these ages ago, instead of constantly looking in the "for sales" and the used record shops for anything that they had put out.

Customs hadn't even opened them so perhaps they got pushed through with all the Christmas mail coming in.

I will keep watching the web to see what is on offer and again, cannot thank you adequately for the superb service and the pleasure that I now
have from the music.

My best wishes for the New Year, take care, 

Chris Baran / Petone New Zealand / December 2003

Dear Mr. Patte,

I recieved my order before Christmas, our E-Mails crossed paths. The Chubby Checker Vol2. CD is super, I'm 100% satisfied! I visit you site about everyday, but
our computer freezes up when I try to click on the Chubby Checker Vol.'s
I need the U S price for Vol. 1 & 3, and do you have the "It's Ponytime cd,also Chubby  Checkers Early Hits,price and I can't locate the Dance Party
anywhere.Thank you for listening for my musical demands.

 Roger H. Zimmermann / Albany MN / December 2003

Hi Neil,

Thanks for the reply.   I've actually  received all but the Annette CD at this point, so I'm not as concerned as I was.  I figure that one's on the way too, so if it doesn't show up in the next few days I'll let you know.

I'm really happy I ran across your website.  You've got a lot of recordings I've been looking for for a long time!

Thanks again and Happy Holidays,

Hey Neil, just read your comments page on your site - and I'm pleased Australians have found you - now they should try and see if the signal is strong enough to
get Hawkesbury Radio 89.9FM at Windsor NSW.

Seriously Neil, your home page is mucho impressive, you have done some hard yards and it has paid off. I'm glad I shop with you for that odd song I can't get
anywhere else to play on radio.

Thanks for being a friend

Yvonne Bartle / Pitt Town Australia / December 2003

Hi Neil

Thank you so much for your help in ordering the cd's.

I overlooked wishing you all  a peaceful and happy Christmas and my hope that the coming year will bring you good health and success.

Looking forward to the arrival of my order and also to watching your website in future. Regards, 

Chris Baran / Petone New Zealand / December 2003

Dear Sir

I thought that I would just E Mail you and confirm that my order, which is my first with your company, has safely arrived in the United Kingdom and is now complete.

I would just like to thank you for the very professional way in which you dealt with my order and I will most certainly be ordering more CDs from you in the future.  I would also have no hesitation in recommending you to my friends.

Thanks again.

John Francis / Shefford England / December 2003

Thank you very, very much!  Appreciate your help!

Dianne Rainey / Woodlands TX / December 2003

Hi Neil,

Thanks for my 45s, which I received a couple of days ago - great fast service, quicker than our UK mail!

I got two of them OK, but 'Paradise By The Dashboard Lights' was missing.  I assume this wasn't in stock which is why it wasn't sent.  Any idea when you might have it in again?

coming your way in a few days.

Have a good day.

Chuck Lynch / Portland OR / November 2003


Just wanted to let you know I received everything today. Thank you for replacing that Andy Williams record for me. This one's a lot better. Not only is it a better pressing, but the new one, a Canadian pressing, is stereo, where the first one you sent, an American copy, was mono. I prefer stereo wherever possible, so if you have both mono & stereo copies of 45 titles I ask about, please send the stereo if you can. By the way, if you've never heard it, check out the stereo 45 of The James Bond Theme by Billy Strange, which I received from you in my order before this. Superb stereo, superb sound overall. I was quite impressed with that one. Haven't had a chance to hear the CD's completely yet, but I know what I'll be doing when I get home from work tonight. I'm sure I'll love them. Take care and I'm sure you'll hear from me soon asking for more goodies. 

Paul Madrid / Arleta CA / November 2003


Received today in good order.

Alan Palmer / Sydney Australia / November 2003

Hey Neil, just playing the Teresa Brewer CD - boy oh boy am I glad I bought it. Thank you for having it, it's fantastic! The songs (most of them) come back to me,
I'm going to play 2 on my show tomorrow.

Just one thing though...One Fine Morning sounds like the record wasn't pressed properly...would I be able to send it back to you and get another ???  Please let me know either way, OK?

Thanks for your time and attention to this matter and have a good day.

idea where I could locate there music I would greatly appreciate it. Or if you ever find a CD of there's I would be greatly interested in purchasing it. Thank you . I enjoy your site. I use it a lot as a reference. I also purchased a Sonny Knight CD from you. Keep up the good work.

Came across your site while searching Google under a song title. After spending an hour persuing your CD Oldies catalgue I had to wipe up rthe drool from the

I'm a 65-year-old whose hobby is collecting hit singles [pop, R&B, R&R and Country] from the 1950s and 1960s - a passion I share with a close friend. Between the two of us we have over 800 CDs and - so far - over 11,000 selections. To this point we have been obtaining a lot of our stuff from but now that we have found your outfit we will be placing orders here til the well runs dry.

What caught our eye was St. Therese Of The Roses by Billy Ward & The Dominos [featuring Jackie Wilson on that song] which is something that just does not appear anywhere except on an expensive Jackie Wilson box-set.

We will be placing our first order soon. In the meantime, on the off chance that you are in contact with someone who puts CDs together [like the Hey! Look What I Found and Remembering series] I have taken the liberty of listing what my friend and I consider to be the 25 hardest selections to find [and believe me we have searched]. Perhaps you could pass this along to one of the outfits with a view to putting together a compilation [call it Impossible To Find 45s]:

Bandit [O'Cangaceiro] - Eddie Barclay - 1955
White Silver Sands - Owen Bradley Quintet - 1957
It's Almost Tomorrow - David Carroll & His Orchestra - 1955
Melody Of Love - David Carroll & His Orchestra - 1955
My Boy - Flattop - Dorothy Collins - 1955
Seven Days - Dorothy Collins - 1956
Glad Rag Doll - Crazy Otto - 1955
Smile - Crazy Otto - 1955
Lovely One - The Four Voices - 1956
Theme from The Threepenny Opera - Richard Hayman & Jan August - 1956
City Of Angels - The Highlights featuring Frank Pisani - 1956
The Petticoats Of Portugal - Dick Jacobs & His Orchestra - 1956
"Main Title" and "Molly-O" - Dick Jacobs & His Orchestra - 1956
An Open Letter To My Teenage Son - Victor Lundberg - 1967
Earth Angel - Gloria Mann - 1955
A Fallen Star - Nick Noble - 1957
Wringle Wrangle - Fess Parker - 1957
Tequila - Eddie Platt & His Orchestra - 1958
True Love - Jane Powell - 1956
The Return Of The Red Baron - The Royal Guardsmen - 1967
English Muffins And Irish Stew - Sylvia Syms - 1956
The Man In A Raincoat - Priscilla Wright - 1955
Lullaby Of Love - Frank Gari - 1961
Love Me Forever - Eydie Gorme - 1958
Torero - Julius LaRosa - 1958

If someone put together such a compilation I know of at least 20 collectors personally who would rush to purchase one. Anyway, just a thought. Look forward to doing business with you soon.

Don Robinson / Brooklyn NY / July 2003

When I moved to Europe way back in the seventies, I entrusted my beloved 
teenage record collection, all vinyl, to a good friend.

While vacationing in Canada and staying with that same good buddy, I 
asked on a whim if he still had the old stuff stashed away. "Of course," 
he said, and proceeded to pull them all out. Dusting off his old 
turntable, we proceeded to listen together to some of the music which 
helped inspire us to form our own rock band as teens.

It was a huge thing for me as a Hamilton area kid to go to big T.O. 
(Toronto for the uninitiated). The highlight of a trip like that was to 
go to "Sam The Record Man," which was the largest place to go to pick up 
vinyl at the time. That's where I originally got my hands on "The Ugly 
Ducklings: Somewhere Outside". This Toronto band was putting out some of 
the most exciting locally made rock at the time.

After listening to the old music here, my friend and I started wondering 
how much of it had been remastered in CD format. I had a lot of doubts 
in that area with respect to a rather short-lived group from T.O. like 
the Ugly Ducklings, a band unknown to most people.

But lo and behold a search on the Internet brought up Continental 
Records and info on a remastering of their various 45s and "Somewhere 
Outside" material.

Being just a big kid after all, I decided to place a quick call to your 
business, which was actually returned immediately after the Canada Day 
holiday (wow, a business that actually calls back for something with as 
little commercial significance as one CD!).

Today, the very next day, it's in my hands and it's an excellent 
remastering, evidently of the original tapes (I'd appreciate getting 
more info on that and who did the job).

Too bad you didn't have stuff by The Paupers, another Toronto band of 
the time, or I would've ordered that too (my order had to go elsewhere).

Excellent service and what a treasure to return to Europe with. Aside 
from having what is hopefully a profitable business for you, you are 
also performing a great contribution by having this hard-to-get heritage 
music available in both the original vinyl and CD formats.

Thanks a lot, and feel free to throw this on the customer 
acknowledgements page on your website if you like.

Hi, Neil.

The 6 records I ordered arrived Monday, June 23rd, and are most excellent. I don't know how It didn't take very long at all, in fact, the timing was also excellent.

The lady I ordered them for was between paychecks but I knew she was 
reliable so I ordered them in advance.

Thanks for your patience with my small orders. Hopefully, someday I may be able to place a much bigger one.

Fred Smith / Toledo OH / June 2003

Thank you so much Neil.  You have been a huge lifesaver, sorry to have
been such a pest.  I look forward to ordering again from you in the
future.  Although, if you want my Texan opinion - you need to get some
George Strait. :)  Have a good day.  - Sara

Sara Thomas / Houston TX / June 2003

Dear Neil:

I told you I would contact you if our records came within 2 days and I do keep my word.  I tried all 3 and no problems at all.

Would you try to excuse my impatience?  I have this problem for a long time while Yvonne is cool as can be.  I'm really old-fashioned and have problems buying anything by mail or over the internet.  I can't seem to change.

Today I am trying to trace a prescription I MAILED to a pharmacy -- they should have had it by now!!  I guess I received back what I gave out to you.

Every time we get an order from you, we get excited.  All stores quit selling 45's.  The Jukebox is our most valuable piece of furniture.  And we do recommend you to others.  One person who Yvonne knows did try buying a large amount of records on E-Bay.  He wound up throwing most away because of how they played.

I sometimes wonder why I get so impatient.   It's as if the world will end unless everything goes JUST PERFECT. It doesn't even make any sense to me when I think about it.  When I was in college, I had a girlfriend who told me that the classroom went 'still' when I walked in the room.  I asked her what she meant.  She said because I was "so cool".  Ha!  Whatever happened?  Man, I just don't know.  I'm workin' on it.  Take care, guy.  Sorry.

Here's my new order:

Gerhard Fiolka / Berne Germany / May 2003

As an Oldies collector, who has searched high and low for some tracks (e.g. 'Morning girl' by The Neon Philharmonic etc) I have to say you have the most fabulous web site I have ever come across.

Please congratulate whoever designed the site.  Words fail me - it is just utterly outstanding!

I am a cautious person and have so far never offered my Credit Card on the Net (there seem so many hacks), but as soon as I can arrange with someone else to buy, I shall be doing so.

Gerald Thorburn / May 2003

Hi Neil.

I'm still looking for a copy of the "Chapel of Love" by the Dixie Cups and "My Girl" by the Temptations.  Any chance you've got either in stock?

Hi from Winnipeg,

Just checking to see if you haven't forgotten my backorder of CDs. Thanks. I still am really enjoying your CDs.  You make/sell a good product.

Larry Krause / Winnipeg MB / July 2002


Thank you for your immediate response.  I am psyched! 

Also, I was wondering if you carry any of the other "30 Original Golden Oldies" series on the Mr. Maestro label.  These compilations have been most satisfying.  I already own 1001 and 1002 and now with this latest
order, 1010.  1006 and 1008 are next on my list from this great label. 

Thank you for your time.

Hi Neil. 

Received the 45's in the mail this week and there perfect. I would like to place another order and have listed the titles below. I need one of each title and could you please include the "Title Strips" with this order as you did with the last order. I have attached my mailing address again just in case you don't have it on file. Let me know if you need my card number again and the availability of these selections if you can. Thanks again for the great service and have a great long weekend. Happy Canada Day.

Ness Sherlock / Hamilton ON / April 2002

Should there be a connection between Continental Records and the Mavis label, to wit, the "Hey! Look What I Found" CD series, I would like to  express how very much I appreciate
this wonderful compilation. 

I recently completed the purchase of the outstanding volumes of the series missing from my collection, and have been thoroughly pleased with each one I've obtained.  Whomever is
responsible for the production of this series is to be congratulated on not only the compiled music, but also the technical quality of the final product.

One can only hope that further volumes are in the works and shall be made available.  This is one of the few "oldies" series that is worth latching on to.

If further volumes are being considered, I would like to suggest the inclusion of Cyril Stapleton's "The Italian Theme" as a part thereof.  Talk about obscure Top 30 hits, that is
one of the prime examples of obscurity.

Thanks again for a wonderful listening experience.

P. S.  Should Continental Records have no connection to Mavis, please pass this along to any contacts you may have with the label.

Don Walker / Forest Hill MD / April 2002


I've ordered quite a few CD's from you and have always been tremendously satisfied with the quality of the discs as well as the service you and
your people have provided.

Got a quick question.  Do you foresee any comprehensive releases of either Bobby Goldsboro or Eydie Gorme's hits in the near future.

You always seem to get the greatest CD's of hard to find songs and although there are greatest hits packages from these two artists, none
of them include the Adult Contemporary hits that each had.

Just thought I'd ask.  Keep up the fantastic work.  Every month I can't wait to see the new releases.

You and the rest of the staff are the best!

Richard Biederstedt / Encinitas CA / April 2002

Dear Neil, 

Just received the Dovells CD I ordered - thank you! I did a little dance of joy when it came, great music! -- Cheers! 

Nanette Valencia / Seattle WA / March 2002

I would like to order some more records. The last ones were great...


Jeffrey L Sweet / Gloversville NY / March 2002

Dear Go-Continental:

I love your site and was very happy with an "All the Hits" collection I ordered with some of the Orlons old songs on its tracks.  Great stuff! I know this is a Philadelphia related rock and roll site but wonder if sometimes in the future you might have that great old Mercury Records album "Pop Hits: The Diamonds" Mercury Wing12178 with such songs as "Land of Beauty" on its tracks, which was the flip or b side of "The Stroll," and other songs not found on any existing collections, even the Mercury collection of their so-called "Best of"
CD.  Something someone wants always gets left off right?

And I don't know where Bobby "Boris" Pickett was from, but that original Monster Mash album was a lot of fun ( I was only twelve or thirteen when it came out in 1962, I think it was, or maybe '63? It's been a while.  Who knows what my mother did with that record?

Anyway, thought I'd ask, especially about that Diamonds song on the b side of "The Stroll," and which I encourage you to consider when you create another oldies collection to think about putting "Land of Beauty" on it as it's as hard to find as much of the great stuff you
have to offer.

In a week or so I've got to order, "Do the Mouse," by Soupy Sales. Met him recently in Los Angeles, last September 6th and he signed his autobiography for me: a great guy!

Anyway, keep up the good work.   There is much I want here and I will soon make a nice order.


Nick Campbell / Atascadero CA / March 2002

Thanks again for making such hard to find music available.

 Christa Blümel / Lendplatz Austria / November 2001

Dear Mr. Patte, 

Just wanted to say I received my copy of Remembering 1963-Volume 3 this past afternoon. It was great to hear Go Away Little Girl by Steve Lawrence and Blame It On The Bossa Nova by Eydie Gorme again. Hadn't heard them in ages and they are practically impossible to find this side of the border. Of course I enjoyed the rest of it as well. Thanks again for your service and your always prompt replies to my questions. I'll be sending out my requests for order #2 later on this week.   Sincerely, 

Paul Madrid  / Arleta CA / November 2001

Thanks Neil,

Everything came to me in perfect condition and I'm happy with the 45s!

Dan Emmons / Pass Christian MS / June 2001

Hello Neil:

Just a note to thank you for the CD I recently ordered. Not only is it a great CD, but also it arrived within a week of my ordering it. Although I ordered the CD for one specific song, there are a number of other songs that I'd forgotten, and now I'm really enjoying them as well...not to mention the memories they bring back What a bonus! Thanks again.I have the website saved in my 'favorites'.

Yana Sabanskis / Vancouver BC / May 2001

Continental Records Dear Neil,

I would like to inform you that I got your small packet with the records on May 8. I was out of town from May 8-10, and I found your packet in my office this morning.

Thank you very much for your job, and I am looking forwards to unpacking it this evening at home!! I would like to search your Web Site often to find more...

Best regards,

Sadanobu Yoshida / Miami FL / May 2001

Neil, the records arrived today. I will advise Visa to pay the first amount and  it is easier if you just remove the second amount on your end. I' m glad we finally got this resolved. The records are great. Thanks much for your constant help. 

John LaRosa / Manorville NY / May 2001

Johan Hagman / Avesta Sweden / May 2001

<laughing> < This way I sell twice as much product here!> I knew you were up to no good, Neil.  <smile> This pal of mine is obsessed with songs of the 50's.  Funny part was,
just today I saw him and gave him the last shipment I received from you.  I hadn't checked my mailbox for the day yet.

This afternoon, I meandered out and lo and behold..there was the next package!  I called to tell him before opening it to find the wrong CD. I sent the song list via e-mail and he said...
"Gimme." Or words to that effect.  When I asked if he wanted the reorder the first... he called me a turkey. Can you imagine?  <laughing>

Thanks're a godsend! Best...Tina

Ron Rosen / South Pasedena CA / July 2000

Thanks again,

Karen Ohrazda / Orondo WA / June 2000

Kind regards,

Dag Sandbu / Norway / May 2000

Got 'em yesterday.  Thanks.

Visited the "official Brian Hyland website" and asked the authors (in an e-mail) why "So Long Marianne" was not included in their list of Hyland hits.  They replied that they had never heard of this tune.  Played to death in the summer of 1971 and a bigger hit than "Gypsy Woman", as I recall.

Makes you think that there's a conspiracy- especially when you hear these tunes regularly on the local Oldies radio station.  And they ain't playing vinyl, either.

Stephen Swenson / Gloucester ON / May 2000

I'm not sure exactly to whom I should address this, but I felt the need  to thank whoever it is that is in  charge of, the cause of, or the catalyst behind the releases on Stardust - and especially the Mavis labels.

I could be like a 50's movie ad - "I laughed, I cried, I shrunk in fear" over the "Hey, Look 
What I Found" series, but as each CD is issued, I want to be, and will be the first on my 
block to have one. I patiently await volumes 10, 11 & 12 - just to see what surprises are 
in store for me. I remember reading the list of titles and artists, then, as each song (I swear - 
each song) played, I said to myself - Oh God! I remember that !!  So, from the deepest 
recesses of my heart's memory - Thank You for these incredible gifts.

Warm Regards,

Alan B. Ector / San Jose, CA / April 2000

Thank you very much for sending "The Philadelphia Story 1957-1967."  The Dovells are now
singing "Hully Gully Baby" flawlessly!  I also enjoyed "Let the Good Times Roll & Feel So Good" by Bunny Sigler which I probably haven't heard since 1967!

Jerzy RUTKOWSKI / Gliwice POLAND / Oct 1999


I received the Rydell CD today.  Thank you. I am very impressed by the sound quality.  I thought under the circumstances it may not be that good.  Good work.

One minor quibble.  All the hits are included except "Door To Paradise" which made #9 here in Australia.  Must admit I can't remember it though. Now I look forward to "The Philadelphia Story".

Thanks again.
