I'm looking for songs that tend to be voice heavy and yet have clear bass and treble. Seems there are so many great hits in the era, but many of them lack either bass, treble, or clarity of sound.

Here are some tracks that I find fit this requirement:

You Don't Know - Helen Shapiro
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCNyAnpoUA8

Faraway Star - The Chordettes
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S7_diXzH1PU

Buddy Holly - True Love Ways
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OT_z-oP6i0M

I've always thought the Marty Robbins Gunfighter Ballads album was an exceptionally good recording.
Great vocals, clean Guitar and Bass, Cymbals not so much but the Guitar makes up for that.


Youtube tends to muddy things up a bit, but on CD or the original Six Eye Columbia LP it's fantastic.

The Diamonds - Little Darlin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SaHPgTdF1g

Jim Reeves - The Blizzard, the Cymbals are more subtle on this one but they are there. This guy's Vinyl rip sounds better than most of the Digital uploads on YT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aUj89DI-Sgo

Ugh, most of my music was extracted there. It was the best quality formats they had to offer, but maybe it would be better grab from a more pure source. :(

Thank you. I found the mp3s and downloaded them. Really liking the voice and clarity, though it's not generally my style of music. I'm liking the Jim Reeves tunes better, but still a little down on the mood for my taste.

As to The Diamonds, already have it. Really like that one.

Okay, I'm going to cheat with respect to date produced, though the style of the music is fitting with the sixties:

The Carpenters - Close to You (1974)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PsnF6GPpOzg

Another one below, but a little light on the cymbals:

The Platters - Smoke gets in your Eyes:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ik0LuWiqi1U

His voice gives me the shivers! :shock:

The Crew-Cuts - Sh-Boom:

That's all I could think of right now...

Can't go wrong with the Carpenters.

Some Carpenter 45's, a few candles, a VM console, and you have the perfect seance!

:lol:

....Or some scotch, a little candlelight and.....

"I'll Follow The Boys" by Connie Francis

"Why Can't He Be You" by Patsy Cline

"When I Lost You" by Jim Reeves

All the above played at slightly higher than normal volume on a Magnavox Concert Grand. Shivers, indeed.
