Yet Another "Best Ever" But ???,
This review is from: The Best Sixties Album In The World...Ever! (MP3 Download)
I must confess that during the 90's I bought a fair number of compilation CDs to try to get back singles that I used to own before financial circumstances meant I had to sell them and one of the 'sets' I bought was the "Best Sixties Album In The World Ever" on Circa Records. They released 4 double albums in total and I thought they were the bees knees as I had 200 songs from the most influential decade of popular music.
I Then spotted this, and of the 75 tracks here, only 13 are not on the original series but are widely available on other compilations of varying quality. It has to be said that time is approaching when just about everything in the 'popular' sphere of chart music will be covered by compilations. I am forunate, (or sad) that I can quickly check what I have where before purchasing albums such as this and if you have a sizeable compilation collection like I have, this is one to avoid.
It also seems sad that they have to re-use an already used title for this album. If you are short of sixties stuff, then this is not bad, but as has been said, most of it is well covered elsewhere. Not really the best album, but passable.
