This Cd plays like a dream. Surf, soul, protest songs and pop nestle side by side to create a 75 minute wonder of American hits from years gone by.

The ever impressive Van Morrison's 'Brown eyed Girl' leads onto gems such as The Left Banke's much loved and often covered 'Walk Away Renee', The gorgeous Shangri-la's finger clickin' melody 'Walkin' in the Sand' evokes the sound of the sixties perfectly. Whilst Bob Lind's 'Elusive Butterfly' is at once whimsical and over earnest but sits alongside the other tunes as a wonderful reminder of pop from a golden age.

This CD makes you wish that you were driving around California in a convertible during the late sixties. And you can just about summon the feeling purely from the music, even if you live in Surrey and have never been there!

A jukebox joy.

A great compilation which started off a series by Ace of which there are three plus a Sunshine Pop one. The songs are all great being a mixture of very well known and obscure US hits. Remember when there were US hits which didn't cross the Atlantic ? We'll this picks up a number of them. This compilation has The Soul Sisters (I Can't Stand It) and The Soul Survivors (Expressway to Your Heart). I have a lot of US hits but even these were new to me. This is a great way to sweep up those ones you missed. Well known ones include Left Banke (Walk Away Renee) Mamas and Papas (California Dreamin') and Lovin' Spoonful (do you believe in magic). I can't recommend this enough
