5.0 out of 5 stars Good Time Feel Good Music From Ace, 10 April 2010
This review is from: Chartbusters USA: Sunshine Pop (Audio CD)
Another amazing selection from Ace in the series Chartbusters USA, as always with any product from Ace, it's hard to find anything to say against what's on offer here, sound quality is as always first class, the informative booklet crammed full of information which to me, is always vitally important. Let's also not forget the bargain price for such a first class selection. The cd contains a mix of well known hits (Turtles, Beach Boys, Mamas and Papas, Lovin' Spoonful), but often with compiliations like this, it's the lesser known tracks that stand out. The Don & The Goodtimes track I Could Be So Good For You, surprisingly, only a number 56 hit, a very commercial sound. The track by The Peppermint Rainbow, Don't Wake Me Up In The Morning Michael, typically of the sound of 1969, and you can almost imagine Tony Blackburn playing this. The under-rated Young Rascals feature with the follow up to Groovin' with A Girl Like You, in my own humble opinion, a better track. The Association feature with Time For Livin', interestingly, a bigger here than in the US. The booklet makes an interesting comment regarding The Mamas & Papas track I Saw Her Again, how many of you like me who have heard and loved this track for years didn't know that there is actually an error by Denny Doherty who starts to sing a little too early, but it's kept on. The track by The Forum, The River Is Wide, much played on Radio Caroline, but sadly not a hit. The family group The Cowsills feature with The Rain, The Park And Other Things. Played on the very early Radio 1, a US number one, but here, nothing. For me, the stand out track on the whole album is by another under rated group in the UK, The Tokens. Adapted from an advert for Clairol shampoo, She Lets Her Hair Down. If any one track from the genre Sunshine Pop simply sums up the whole sixties period, it is this one. A turntable hit here in the UK when first released in 1969, and again when re-issued in 1971. Superb harmonies from The Tokens. Marks out of 5 for this cd?, I'd give it 12, it's that good. Let's hope for more in this series soon.
