Volume 2 of 4
on 3 March 2005
I regard this as the best series of sixties compilations yet released on CD. Even with 200 tracks between four volumes, it would have been easy to continue the series. On compilations like this, I particularly look for classic tracks by artists who only had one or two big hits. Of course, most of the major names are here although you won't find Elvis, the Beatles or the Rolling Stones here due to licensing restrictions.
Maintaining the standard of the first volume, this contains another selection of classic tracks from the sixties. I was particularly pleased at the inclusion of Baby come back (Equals) but there are many other classics here.
My favorites here include Oh pretty woman (Roy Orbison), Young girl (Gary Puckett), Bend me shape me (Amen Corner), Something's gotten hold of my heart (Gene Pitney),You've lost that loving feeling (Righteous brothers), I can't let Maggie go (Honeybus), Keep on running (Spencer Davis Group) and Everlasting love (Love Affair).
With two volumes released, most of the artists I expected to see had now made at least one appearance. While this collection stands on its own merit, it is even better as part of the series.
