5.0 out of 5 stars Great 60's CDs 27 April 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There are a lot of 60's compilations around that are either full of duff tracks or are re-recordings made when the artists have passed their prime or only 1 member of a group etc.
This double CD is none of those things, pretty much every track is great and all are orginal. If you would like a good selection of 60s pop then this is the CD you need. Excellent!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lets hang on to what we got...... 6 Dec 2009
By Peter Wade VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Lets hang on to what we got......

I was not only there in the 60s but I remember it very well, it is yesterday I am having trouble with.

I bought this compilation as a a Christmas present and if it had been sealed would not have played it. Fortunately for me it wasn't sealed so I played today on a long car journey

It is good value at 60 tracks. As one other reviewer said sometimes they slip in recordings by part of the group but as far as I can tell there are no re-recordings here.

The selection is mainly British hits with some which we rarely hear from with people like the Herd, Amen Corner The Love Affair.

Great rousing songs like Eloise by Barry Ryan to You'll never walk alone.

Petula Clark is represented twice with Don't sleep in the subway not her strongest hit and Downtown which was her strongest hit, not my favourite singer.

Also rarities for instance the Dakotas as in The Cruel Sea.

The Yanks are well represented with Del Shannon, The Turtles , the Monkees and the Four seasons.

All in all a great collection and the person who I have bought this CD for doesn't deserve such a good CD so he is being spoilt. I did in fact buy two as presents as the reviews were so good and I was not disappointed
Highly recommended. The sixties as its best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgia at its best 20 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you remember the 60's and want to relive the memories or if you weren't around then but would like to know what us old fogies listened to, then this is the CD set for you. I met and got to know a lot of the artists who are featured on this compilation and still get to meet some of them through the Solid Silver 60's Road Shows.
They still produce the goods so buy this and listen to them as we did in their heyday.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid Silver 60's 17 July 2009
Format:Audio CD
There is a wonderful saying,'If you can remember the 60's then you weren't there'. This is not strictly true because I do remember that time and in particular the great music that lives on even now thanks to the many artists from that time who are keeping it alive. It not only gives my generation great pleasure but is also attracting a whole younger audience. If you were there and have trouble remembering or are just inquisitive put this CD on,turn up the volume and you will discover just why this period in our history was such a great place to be involved in, the swinging sixties!

5.0 out of 5 stars hours of singalong fun 6 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
As a fourty, nearly fifty something I found this CD to be a wonderful trip down memory lane. Playing it in the car on my own means I can singalong as loud and as badly as I please! There are a good selection of tracks from a large number of different artists but all well known and loved tunes! Buy this for the 45+ people in your life.
