* Ace's popular `Chartbusters USA' series is back, after a short break, with the first of several `themed' volumes highlighting specific aspects of mid-late 60s American Popular music.
* As its name implies, "Sunshine Pop" focuses on the up-tempo, upbeat style of Hot 100 hit as exemplified by the likes of the Mamas and the Papas, the Turtles and the 5th Dimension. It'll be the perfect soundtrack to the `sizzling summer' that weather forecasters are predicting for 2009.
* Despite the fact that many of these records were hits in both the US and the UK, many of them have never been issued on UK CD before - and, in some cases, the single versions used here have never been on CD anywhere in the world before.
* Many of the contributors to "Sunshine Pop" are among the best-known names of their era and, whether they were minor successes or massive smashes, all of the tracks are staples of US Oldies radio.
* As is the case throughout this series, copious sleeve notes and a wealth of label shots and related ephemera enhance a splendid listening experience.
* Get out the sun lounger, pour yourself a Pimms, plug in your IPod and enjoy some instant sunshine courtesy of Ace.

My own personal favourite on this release is The Tokens "She Let's Her Hair Down" from 1969 which I immediately liked on first listening - great song with good harmonies and interesting key changes.
You can pretty much take for granted that the tracks featured any Ace release have been sourced from the best quality recordings with superb mastering throughout.
My only criticism is that The Lemon Pipers' "Green Tambourine" which is here is duplicated from volume 1 of the series.
Hopefully, there is still a long way to go with this series. I look forward to future releases...
Neither had I till I went on Garage Hangover.Recently he put out Florence Warner & the Status Symbol after I sent him some mp3s so I think he must have eventually found it where I did-on Red Telephone.
Which is nothing to do with this CD of 28 tracks which Ace decide fit the name because this area of American music is a pretty broad church and ran alongside the British Invasion to the Bubblegum explosion.It used to be called Good Time Music after the first use of the name by the Lovin' Spoonful but at some stage just became Folk Rock
