I had never heard of this group until a couple of tracks were played on BBC Radio 2 s Sounds of the Sixties programme. This is a marvellous album containing , I presume , originals plus a cover of the wonderful Kevin Johnson song Rock n Roll(I gave you the best years of my life).Also included is Harry Belafonte s Scarlet Ribbons. Great voices , all in all, highly recommended !

Apart from the Cats 100 five CD set, this is the last hits album that the Cats released, in 2006. Most of the tracks are their biggest and best known hits, like Lea, Why, Marian, Where Have I Been Wrong and One Way Wind. These are on almost every one of the many Cats compilations that EMI has released. Are there any fans who don't already have them? Yet this compilation is different from the others and does have one or two real treats. There is a long version of There Has Been A Time, where the female chorus plays out the track in an appealing way. And there are two tracks on the album that at the time of release were brand new recordings. These are the title track, Those Were The Days, and their last hit The Best Years Of My Life. This last track is stunning, as good as any of the major hits they had at the height of their career. Frankly, the album is worth it just for this track alone.

Have followed music avidly since the late 1950's and especially through the 60's and 70's. I cannot understand how this wonderful band have remained undiscovered in the UK. In Piet Veerman they have one of the best vocalists I have ever heard - such a distinctive voice. So much of their repertoire is self-penned and they concentrate on rich melodies with catchy riffs. This album is a bargain, so much of their material is hard to get and therefore expensive. As has been said it includes a great version of the 'turntable hit' of the 1970's - Rock And Roll (I gave you the best years of my life) by Kevin Johnson - but there are highlights all over the album - One Way Wind(probably their signature song), Times Were When,and Don't Waste Your Time stand out. If you like this, try and get a copy of 'Home' - their best album. A pure delight.

Those Were The Days by Dutch group The Cats is an excellent album which includes a number of there hit singles in Holland like "Times Were When","One Way Wind" and ,"Where Have I Been Wrong".There are a number of other compilation albums by the Cats of which "Cats Complete Collection" is the best one.
