5.0 out of 5 stars Mr Acker Bilk, 19 Jun 2010
This review is from: Very Best of (Audio CD)
Included on this excellent CD are 7 UK top 20 hits plus 4 USA top 100 chart entries, with Stranger on the Shore reaching No.2 UK and No.1 USA. All the tracks are in stereo and original recordings. This is a must for Acker Bilk fans as it can be difficult to find his original single releases, UK and USA, on one CD.

3.0 out of 5 stars More Of The Usual., 6 May 2010
This review is from: Number 1s: 60s Pop (Audio CD)
I bought this CD for 2 tracks, This Diamond Ring and Incense and Peppermints, which are difficult to find on UK CD releases. All the other tracks, except for Crimson and Clover, made the Top Fifty in the UK and are readily available over here. It's not one of the best compliations of 60's music around, but if you are interested in what topped the charts in the USA during this period it might be worth a punt.

CD comes in renewable, recyclable, biodegradble packaging, which means carboard casing and foam type inset which holds the CD. Why anyone would want to recycle the case leaving only the CD is anyones guess!

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh! That Click, 19 Feb 2010
Yet another disappointing release of this album on CD. The title track starts with an annoying click that seems to be on most releases of You've Got To Hide Your Love Away (probably transferred from vinyl in the early days of CD's). You would have thought by now that this would have been dealt with by modern technology. If you want a clean version of this track try "True Sixties Love" or "Dick Bartley Presents:Classic Oldies 1965-1969".

5.0 out of 5 stars Value For Money, 17 July 2009
This review is from: Original Hits - Sixties (Audio CD)
What can you say about this compilation CD. 150 hits from the Swinging 60's on 6 Cd's. Many of the tracks are available on other CD's but if you want a taste of 60's music, no better place to start.

1.0 out of 5 stars Original Recordings Remastered ?????, 18 Jun 2009
Original recording remastered, not really. Most tracks are re-recordings (and not very good ones at that) and some are live recordings. If you want the original recordings of these tracks avoid this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome To My World, 4 Jun 2009
This review is from: The Very Best of (Audio CD)
At last a Jim Reeves CD with the original version of Welcome To My World with full orchestration (as used in the TV advert) not the accoustic version available on most UK CD's. Many of the tracks are in stereo and of good quality and my CD follows the track listing. Would recommend to anyone wanting a greatest hits compliation of Jim Reeves.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dreamboats Better, 29 April 2009
This review is from: Like I Do (Audio CD)
Poor quality transfer to CD from source. Her biggest hit, Like I Do, being the worse. Better of buying Dreamboats and Petticoats Two if you want this track.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovers of the world......., 12 April 2008
This review is from: David And Jonathan (Audio CD)
I had to buy this CD as it contains one of my favourite songs from that era the wonderful Lovers Of The World Unite. The compilation also includes Michelle, which charted in the USA, plus many of their compositions which went on to become hits for other artists.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Folk Rock....., 10 April 2008
This review is from: Casey Kasem: Top Ten (Audio CD)
More folk rock than folk on this CD. An enjoyable compliation of hits from the American charts in the 60's. Many of the songs will be known to the UK audience but worthwhile purchasing all the same. However, the inclusion of A World Without Love by Peter and Gordon stretches the Folk Rock idiom a bit far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Those oldies....., 10 April 2008
This review is from: 60's Gold (Audio CD)
2 disc CD covering American hits from 1960-1969. Many of these charted in the UK. Most of the tracks can be found on other compliations released in Britain. However, I enjoyed the set and would recommend it to anyone wanting to start a 60's collection.
