5.0 out of 5 stars Great Collection of Original Hits 7 Sep 2012
By R. S. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
To answer the question raised in the earlier review, yes, they are all the original hits, and the sound quality is great. One caveat is that, like other sets in this series, it is geared much more towards British hit singles and may not be as familiar and/or appeal as much to American listeners. For Anglophiles and lovers of classic 60s music, though, it is a true gold mine.

3.0 out of 5 stars More like 60 Hits from 60s Pop 4 Mar 2014
By Rainer O. Vonsaleski - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
To be sure, there are genuine original hits by the original artists on the collection (more than about 60% of the songs). And there are some very odd covers -- for example, My Girl, that great Temptations song, is done by Otis Redding, who at least was a contemporary of the Temptations. But how do you explain 3 songs by Vanilla Fudge? These include She's Not There (a 1964 Zombies hit), You Keep Me Hanging On (a 1966 Supremes hit), and Season of the Witch (a 1966 Donovan hit). Vanilla Fudge was not formed until 1967, and their style is anything but a faithful cover. Had you even heard of Vanilla Fudge in the 60s?

And then there is I Wanna be Your Dog, by The Stooges. Or In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida by Iron Butterfly. Not exactly what I think of when I think of Pop from the 1960s.

Enough complaining. Just set your player to skip the misplaced tracks, and enjoy the majority of the songs, which are original recordings of the original hits. Most (but not all) are reproduced here with good sound quality. Call it 60 Hits from 60s Pop.

4.0 out of 5 stars an interesting collection of mostly american "sixties pop"... 20 Aug 2014
By trebe - Published on Amazon.com
The 100 Hits label specializes in compilation sets that contain 100 songs, on five CD's. The different collections, which presently number over twenty, are usually based on a theme, the decade of release, or a musical genre. If you can find them at a reasonable price, these sets provide an economical way to acquire a nice block of music.

The 100 Hits Sixties Pop collection is a mixed bag of undisputed classics, well known hits, some lesser known tunes, and a few rather obscure selections. Most of the songs are by American artists, and are in the rock, soul, and pop genres. Several artists are featured as many as three times, so the diversity isn't as great as it could be. The track listing is provided at Amazon, so you can decide for yourself if the collection is to your liking. There may be some eclectic selections, but there really isn't a dud in the bunch.

Spanning the genres, the absolute classic tunes include "I'm A Believer" (The Monkees), "Respect" (Aretha Franklin), "Happy Together" (The Turtles), "Windy" (The Association), "Soul Man" (Sam and Dave), and "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay" (Otis Redding). There are many minor hits, with a heavy emphasis on soul and American pop. Except for The Yardbirds' "Over Under Sideways Down", there isn't much of a contribution from British artists.

At the far end of the spectrum are some heavy numbers that may not fit most people's definition of "pop", including "I Wanna Be Your Dog" (The Stooges), an abridged version of Iron Butterfly's psychedelic opus "In-A-Gada-Da-Vida", and a pair of Vanilla Fudge songs, "Season of the Witch", and "She's Not There". Among the somewhat curious selections are Arthur Conley's cover of The Beatles "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da", and Connie Steven's "Kookie Kookie (Lend Me Your Comb)".

This collection provides an interesting sampling of music from the exciting and magical 1960's, when an unprecedented revolution in popular music occurred, and rock and roll exploded into the culture, and changed the world. Not arranged chronologically or by genre, the collection seems a little jumbled. While not the ideal collection of the biggest hits from the decade, this set could be of interest to those looking for a little broader musical perspective, and the music does seem to grow on you with repeated listenings.

Complete track listings for this and most other "100 Hits" compilations are available at allmusic.com.

It's a great series, though if you owned them all you would have a few repeated tracks.

We bought this for a 60's theme family gathering. Everyone had fun singing the songs, even the young 'uns amongst us.
