5.0 out of 5 stars A Excellent 60's Compilation, 27 Jan 2008
This review is from: 100 Hits: 60s (Audio CD)
All the original recordings. A wonderful 5 CD box set with a few surprises added that gets 10 out of 10.

"100 Hits- 60s" contains 12 number ones that collectively spent 49 weeks at the top of the UK single charts (The Everly Brothers' "Cathy's Clown" 9wks, Elvis Presley's "It's Now Or Never" 8 wks, Jim Reeves' "Distant Drums" 5 wks, Gary Pucketts' "Young Girl" 4 wks, Scott McKenzie's "San Francisco (Be Sure To Wear Some Flowers In Your Hair)" 4 wks, Hugo Montenegro's "The Good, The Bad And The Ugly" 4 wks, Everly Brothers' "Walk Right Back" 4 wks, Roy Orbison's "Only The Lonely" 3 wks, Zager & Evans' "In The Year 2525" 3 wks, Love Affair's "Everlasting Love" 2 wks, Sonny & Cher's "I Got You Babe" 2 wks, and Georgie Fame's "The Ballad Of Bonnie And Clyde" 1 wk).

A further 49 top 20 hits are included, and many tracks not included on other similar compilations.

Really pleasing to see the inclusion of The Yardbirds' "Over Under Sideways Down", Edward Byrnes & Connie Stevens' "Kookie Kookie (Lend Me Your Comb)" and The Mar-Keys' soulful instrumental "Last Night".

All in all an great collection at a great price that should be part of everyone's 60's collection.
