The Very Best Of The Searchers; Silverline 284570-2 DualDisc
***1/2 (music) Zero Stars for yet another format to confuse
consumers: 

Not too long ago a Searchers SACD was reviewed.  That disc had a
slightly different selection of songs, but otherwise is not unlike this
collection (aside from being one-sided and offering no video
whatsoever).  The DVD side of this disc shows photos over the
music.  Sound quality was excellent although there was very little
coming from the surrounds.  The liner notes are extensive and
cover just about every aspect of the band you’d want to know
about.  Aside from the big hits, track seven sounds like a Beatles
tune, and, in the liner notes there is mention of some of the
similarities.  Track nine is rockabilly and you had better be a
fan of harmonizing.  Track 12 is actually misnamed on the back
cover.  On the on-screen titling and inside the booklet it is
correctly called “He’s Got No Love,” while on the back it says “He’s
Got No Name.”  The disc is filled with happy, peppy 60s style
tunes that could be coming right out of jukebox except for the much
improved sound quality. 

Songs included are:  Sweets For My Sweet; Needles and Pins; Loe
Potion Number Nine; Don’t Throw Your Love Away; Sugar and Spice; When
You Walk In the Room; Ain’t That Just Like Me; What Have They Done to
the Rain; Someday Day We’re Gonna Love Again; Goodbye My Love; Bumble
Bee; He’s Got No Love; Take Me For What I’m Worth; Have You Ever Loved
Somebody.
