Also released on 14 July, Silver Dollar is a 12-track download album. All the tracks come from the Kinda Folksy LP, but have a different running order. This is the fourth download album to be issued under this title.

A download album was issued on 11 August under the title Great Folk Songs, which has 24 tracks. Twenty-three of the tracks were issued in 1961 and 1962. The one track from 1963 is Little By Little. However, the most interesting thing about this release is the artwork, which I suspect is a shot from Karen Noble's tribute show.

There are so many downloads and streams you can do for the Springfields, but if you want all the songs in one place then I thoroughly recommend "The Springfields on an island of dreams". This double CD has all their Philips UK recordings 1961-64, a total of 47 tracks.

BTW. On looking at Amazon for this CD I noticed that our Brian had reviewed " Kinda Folksy" but preferred SOAIOD.
No better recommendations folks :!: :rose: :bravo:

A great cd. The Christmas repertoire is sadly missing though.....

Just in case anyone thinks otherwise, I am most definitely not recommending the various download compilations I record in this thread. My purpose is only to record their existence, expose the paucity of imagination in compiling them and have a laugh at some of the titles and artwork.

Like Pat, I do recommend the double CD set On An Island Of Dreams for anyone wanting to collect material by The Springfields. The companies issuing the bulk of the download albums are merely trying to make a quick buck from recordings which are now out of copyright.

The latest download compilation, issued yesterday, rejoices under the rather ungrammatical title of I Love This Songs.

Its 24 tracks are split 13 by The Springfields and 11 by The Lana Sisters. None of the material by The Springfields is later than 1962. I haven't a clue as to the identity of the woman in the artwork

The latest download album of material by The Springfields was released on 15 September under the title Surround With Friends. Yes, you have guessed it - eight tracks from Kinda Folksy and four from 1962 singles.

With a gap of two months since the last download album of Springfields' material, I was beginning to think that the well had run dry or, more likely, the law of diminishing returns had set in.

However, to prove me wrong, a 25-track compilation was released under the title Greenback Dollar on 14 November. The bulk of the tracks come from the group's two albums together with a few Christmas and foreign language recordings. None of the group's hits are included.
