5.0 out of 5 stars Not my decade but, on the strength of this, I rather wish it was, 8 Aug. 2014
This review is from: TOP 40 - SIXTIES (Audio CD)
Unlike most of my fellow reviewers, I had no legitimate nostalgic reason for wanting to send for this: I just know good value when I see it, that's all. Two discs of music, with an accompanying MP3 download included, and all for less than a fiver? I could probably be talked into buying two discs' worth of Mongolian Throat Singing if it was presented like that, never mind something that contains the musical genius of both Andy Williams AND Floyd Cramer.

I'm not unaccustomed to making impulse buys - especially in this 'Top 40' series, funnily enough - but this particular collection might just be one of my most astute purchases ever. The sound quality is excellent, the selection of tunes is inspired and there, truly, is not a duff track to be found anywhere. There's a great mix of genres and styles that is just perfect for a relative stranger to this decade such as myself. And the music is not your usual, predictable, sort of stuff either.

Putting 'On The Rebound' and 'Music To Watch Girls By' to one side, my favourite song on here has actually turned out to be one I had never previously heard before: Georgie Fame's 'The Ballad of Bonnie and Clyde'. Apparently it got to number one in 1968 which, although before my time, surely should have afforded it the sort of status that would have led to me meeting it courtesy of some other form of impulse purchase before now? I can't believe something like that has escaped my attention all these years!

Honestly, this is the sort of purchase that gives impulse buying a good name.
