The 'Best Ever' is yet to be released.,
This review is from: The Best Sixties Album In The World...Ever! (Audio CD)
All the same stuff again. Notably there is nothing from the Beatles, Rolling Stones, two of the bands which created the 60s. And if you are expecting the original single version of Tom Jones' It's Not Unusual (described as Original Studio Version, Version 1), then you'll be disappointed. This is the really horrible 1980's remaster with the annoying clicking all the way through.

The cost of licensing the tracks is the reason why you rarely find Beatles or Stones tracks on compilations like this. You're right; it IS all the same stuff again. What we really need is a compilation made by the people who were regular followers of the pop music charts in the 1960s, who heard EVERYTHING that made the listings, and might feel inspired to select some of the less-familiar songs (to today's audience) that were still big chart hits in their day nevertheless. Look at some of the recent "100 hits" box sets to get an idea of the sort of thing I mean. This collection is one of many which are made with a mainstream audience in mind, and as long as this remains the case, then we'll just get the same songs sold to us again and again. Surely it's time the compilers were brave enough to give us something different!
