Bear Family's three-volume And the Answer Is: Great Answer Discs from the '50s and '60s series documents the phenomenon of answer records, presenting both the original hit and the response to the single. These were songs designed to respond to hit singles, with the hopes that the second record would climb up the charts as well. Answer records were prevailant in country, pop and R&B, but on And the Answer Is: Vol. 2, Bear Family concentrates on pop-rock records from the '60s. Pop-rock answer records never produced a classic on the level of Kitty Wells' "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels," and her response to Hank Thompson's "Wild Side of Life." Instead, most pop responses were simply novelties, which means And the Answer Is: Great Answer Discs from the '60s is designed for fetishists and collectors with a taste for the arcane and unusual. Anyone who has a passing interest in the bizarre side roads of pop music will find the compilation very entertaining. Highlights of Vol. 2 include Marcie Blane's "Bobby's Girl" / Sherry Sisters' "Stay Away from Bobby," Jack Scott's "Burning Bridges" / Bobbie Jean's "You Burned the Bridges," Ray Peterson's "Tell Laura I Love Her" / Marilyn Michaels' "Tell Tommy I Need Him," Bobby Vee's "Please Don't Ask About Barbara" / Mike Regal's "Is It True What They Say About Barbara," Pat Boone's "Are You Lonesome Tonight" / Thelma Carpenter's "Yes, I'm Lonesome Tonight," and Barry Mann's "Who Put the Bomp" / Frankie Lymon's "I Put the Bomp." ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
