5.0 out of 5 stars Sunshine pop, 2 Nov. 2006
This review is from: A Whole Lot Of Rainbows: Soft Pop Nuggets From The WEA Vaults (Audio CD)
If you are looking for a compilation of greatest hits of the Sixties you will need to look elsewhere. If however you want to hear something different of the Sixties where you are not likely to have heard the majority of the tracks then this is the right one to get.

I can't remember exactly how I first heard of this compilation, it might of been from Mojo and if I hadn't read about it I would never of bought it. If you have come across this through searching Amazon please read on.

What do you get for your money? 70 minutes of what the compilers describe as Sunshine Pop and it is a very apt description.The music spans the years 1966 to 1969 and the sound falls somewhere between the Mamas and Papas and the Association. The quality of the music is excellent throughout, all well produced, lovely harmonies, great songs. Of the artistes featured The Monkees, The Association, Harpers Bazaar and The Everly Brothers are the most familiar names. You won't necessarily find these tracks on the individual greatest hits, certainly not The Everly Brothers or The Monkees but they should certainly be better known.

The songs won't hit you straight away but after a few plays you are likely to be hooked as I am.

The attractive booklet deserves a mention as well. It's well illustrated, well researched.

This is a marvellous CD and deserves to be better known and appreciated. For anyone prepared to take the risk- Happy listening.
