Reissue label Complete 60s released this box set in August of last year. It contains each and every single that cracked the US Hot 100 in genres as diverse as pop, rock, R & B, country, jazz, blues and easy listening of the year 1960. Artists featured include The Ventures, Bill Black's Combo, guitar legends Duane Eddy and Chet Atkins, rock acts The Champs, Johnny & The Hurricanes, The Fireballs and Capitol studio musicians who convened under the guise of The Piltdown Men. There are easy listening/mood music hits galore performed by the great orchestras of Percy Faith, Frank Chacksfield, Don Costa, Mantovani, Billy Vaughn and Henry Mancini plus movie hits played by pianists supreme Ferrante & Teicher and Roger Williams. The box set was produced by Bill Buster, the man behind ace American reissue label Eric Records, which means satisfaction guaranteed! The sound is simply astounding and for any two-channel buff quite a few hits appear in stereo for the first time ever! The accompanying booklet contains in-depth information on the artists as well as an extensive chart log, which is bound to please any avid record collector. In my opinion, this is the quintessential instrumental box, and comes highly commended!

If you're looking at reviews for this collection, suffice to say you probably know what you're looking for. I only want to confirm that the claim of "Highest Quality Sound" on the front of each CD case is indeed true.
Personally, I'm looking forward to 1962 onwards which is when I really began my musical awakening.
But don't hesitate, buy these collections while you can!

I have collected instrumental 60's music for a long time but this collection is outstanding.
The wool gets virtually pulled out of your ears - most of the titles I knew before sound so much better on this compilation.
Plenty hard-to-find tracks and a lot of stereo versions.
As a bonus you'll get to hear the original mono takes of the hits of Bill Black's combo for the first time since their orignal release. What a treat !

The title says it all in fact: the 3 cd's respond to my wishes, but the cd box in which they appear was damaged and that's a shame ...
