43 of 44 people found the following review helpful By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 3 Mar. 2005
Format: Audio CD
I regard this as the best series of sixties compilations yet released on CD. Even with 200 tracks between four volumes, it would have been easy to continue the series. On compilations like this, I particularly look for classic tracks by artists who only had one or two big hits. Of course, most of the major names are here although you won't find Elvis, the Beatles or the Rolling Stones here due to licensing restrictions.
On this volume, I was particularly pleased to find Rescue me (Fontella Bass) as I already had many of the other tracks elsewhere, but there are so many classics here that I never tire of hearing including Flowers in the rain (Move), Waterloo sunset (Kinks), Downtown (Petula Clark), The sun ain't gonna shine any more (Walker brothers), Dock of the bay (Otis Redding), Reach out I'll be there (Four Tops), Dancing in the street (Martha Reeves and the Vandellas) and It's not unusual (Tom Jones) to name a few. Whiter shade of pale (Procol Harum) is here too, though I still haven't figured out what the song is about - not that it matters because it's classic. There are two country songs - Crazy (Patsy Cline) and Wichita lineman (Glen Campbell). I was surprised but pleased to find them here.
When I bought this upon its release, I noticed some obvious omissions but subsequent volumes dealt with many of them. Never mind, this was (and remains) a brilliant compilation in its own right.

Any compilation with such a petulant, optimistic title is bound not to live up to expectations. However, most of mine were met, even though I have many of these tracks elsewhere.
It`s great to have in one place Cliff`s breezily summery The Young Ones, Carole King`s charmingly youthful It Might As Well Rain Until September, Del Shannon`s driven Runaway, The Everlys` pounding later hit The Price Of Love, immaculate Zombies one-off She`s Not There, Manfred Mann`s finest single Pretty Flamingo, the sublime Unchained Melody, impeccable, yearning Wichita Lineman, Andy Williams at his best, two immortal tracks by the Four Tops & Martha & the Vandellas, the original r`n`b-inflected Moodies` unforgettable chart-topper Go Now, and of course the peerless Waterloo Sunset, a song it`s never the wrong time to hear, by the one 60s group who perhaps, Beatles aside, sound as fresh & timeless today as they ever did.
I would have chosen different examples by the Beach Boys (Do It Again instead of the overhyped Good Vibrations), the wonderful Hollies (I`m Alive or Yes I Will instead of He Ain`t Heavy...), The Move (perhaps Blackberry Way or Tonight rather than the dated Flowers In The Rain), and Cliff Bennett & the Rebel Rousers, whose sturdy version of the Beatles` Got To Get You Into My Life is fine, but I`d have chosen their superb Drifters cover One Way Love.
There`s hardly anything here I don`t like - though a little of Mony Mony and Hi Ho Silver Lining go a long way now, and Silence Is Golden isn`t a patch on the hits the Tremeloes had with Brian Poole - Do You Love Me, Candy Man & Someone Someone.
