5.0 out of 5 stars Its got what is takes 18 July 2009
By Peter Wade VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I get a bit blase about hits collections as they can be of variable quality but for the price this 101 recorindgs is great.

I suppose for copyright reasons they could not get any Beatles or Rolling Stones tracks and all we have is Plastic Ono Band give Peace a chance.

I always look to see if there are tracks that don't normally appear

CD one had The Band with The Weight which you dont come across that often.

CD two gave us Paul Jones and The Toys

CD3 gave us Keith West and his Teenage Opera

CD Four Inez and Charlie Foxx with Mockingbird and The Locomotive Rudis in Love

I like it when they really have thought aout it and come out with some tracks that do not appear on other compilations or are just a lazy rehash of all the tracks that we have heard thousans of times.We need the classics which are here but we need to extend our knowledge and tastes.

Who would have thotught of Marv Johnson and You got what it takes.

I could play these Cds for a very long times before I got bored of them

I lived through the sixties so I know them all but for youngsters this is a positive feast of the best of the sixties.

Highly recommended.

By Tim Kidner TOP 500 REVIEWER

Firstly, I was born in the 60's but didn't 'listen' to music until the early 80's and got this set, thus working backwards only a few years ago.

Most of us end up with a number of compilations that cover slightly different genres/musical areas and the same tracks pop up, which can get quite annoying - and a waste of money. If I hear Good Vibrations again, I'll scream!

This happens a fair bit at the start of these 4 cds as the producers stick the well-known hits on, to make the initiated whoop with delight but they do soon settle into the better, lesser known stuff that's not heard everyday on cheesy radio playlists and compilations.

Some of my favourite 60's tracks are here - and some aren't. I can possibly think of 2 that I'd like to be included and that's a pretty good ratio, not perfect, but that's the beauty of playlists you make up once you've ripped from the CDs. It's also good to hear originals of hits that were made famous later - they're so often better originally.

For the money I paid (similar to what the secondhand price is now) the set is very good value. The box itself is better made than average and doesn't feel that it's going to crumble as you prise it open, which it does smoothly.

There are other compilations around, of course and if I'd bought one of them I'd probably being saying something similar about that, but I didn't - and as I've never felt the need to go searching for another 60's set, that's a pretty fair testament.

5.0 out of 5 stars A visit down memory lane 9 Jun 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I already knew all the tracks listed on the album, since they were part of my youth back in the 60`s, and so it was easy to buy the album. The 60`s were a time when young peoples culture and freedoms developed at a huge pace. Every day memorable new pop music was coming on the radio, and watching Top of the Pops on BBC TV was an absolute must. The lyrics of the music connected with the experiences of being young and adventurous, and challenged our parents and the older generation. What an interesting time to live and be young.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a fan, bought for present 13 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bought this for my Father who is still stuck in the 60's and he loves it, all the great are on this set and he has just about played them to dust.

Great quality item, loads and loads of various artists are found here and it is truly an ideal gift for the 60's obsessed pre-pensioner in your family who refuses to move with the times!
