Format: Audio CD
A beautiful compilation of the less famous, but really enjoyable, pop hits of the early sixties. Almost all songs charted on the Sydney and Melbourne pop charts and some of them nowhere else in the world.

It's pretty rare to find on one cd such rarities as: Millie-'Sweet William' (follow up of her big hit 'My Boy Lollipop'), Sonny James-'Apache' (a singing' version of the famous Shadows hits), Kyu Sakamoto-'China Nights' (follow up of Sukiyaki), Vic Dana-'Hello Roommate' (a beautiful teen ballad in The Fleetwoods style, not available on the best of Vic Dana compilations), The Glencoves-'Hootenanny' (recorded live in the university's student lounge), Sue Tompson-Willie Can, Jody Miller-He Walks Like A Man (brilliant!) and so on and on.

The sound is generally very well remastered (you can tell that some rare tracks have been taken from the vinyl source, though) and the whole cd is very enjoyable. I gave it at least 10 spins in the first few days after I received it and I can tell you that there is not one weak song on it. The booklet is written in a clever way, it's interesting and it has 16 pages with some nice pictures. Running time of the cd is 75:57.

What else I can say? This great Australian cd instantly became my favorite early 60's compilation. In my opinion the content is sligtly better then the Ace's 'The Golden Age Of American Popular Music' and 'Teenage Crush' series or Eric's 'Teen Time: The Young Years Of Rock'n'Roll'. It's a hidden gem, with so many great songs. Get it while you can, satisfaction is guaranteed.

Highly recommended!

A diverse and entertaining compilation 15 Feb. 2010
By Dan Penwarn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is the second of four compilations (so far) from Australia's Canetoad Records which chronicles songs that made the top fifty down under in the 1960s. Many of the the records in Hazy Memories will be familiar to you, as they also appeared on North American charts. The real beauty of the series lies in the diversity of the titles, because some of the songs were hits solely in Australia, while others were by artists who never cracked the North American charts. A good example is the song "Gino", performed by the German vocalist Conny. I've never heard the song before, but it, nevertheless, is a great example of the catchy euro-pop of the time. Millie Small's "Sweet William", a follow up to the smash My boy lollipop,is as elusive a chart hit as you're likely to find-or not. The song made #40 in 1964 and has rarely, if ever, made an appearance in a collection of this type. Sonny James' vocal version of Jurgen Ingman's classic instrumental "Apache" is another underrated gem. Produced by Chet Atkins and featuring the Anita Kerr quartet, the song is haunting and evocative, propelled by James'elegant vocals. My personal favourite is Kyu Sakamoto's "China Nignts", his follow up to the wonderful "Sukyaki". A pop hit in Canada and the US in September of 1963,"China Nights" seems to have been largely forgotten, something remedied by its appearance in this compilation. The Glencoves' rousing "Hootenanny", Brenda Lee's "Your used to be" and Jody Miller's "He walks like a man" are others in this collection that are well remembered oldies and,until now,very difficult to find on cd.Sound quality is uniformly good, although I suspect some of the songs are needle drops; that is to say they probably were sourced from vinyl.Tracks 1,8-10,16,18,26,29 and 32 appear in stereo.Other than a less than sterling cover of the doo-wop classic "I ran all the way home", this collection is very entertaining trip back to the glory days of 60s popular music-diverse and diverting.
