This is a wide and varied selection of what is pure up-beat pop from the 60s and 70s. Obviously it would be impossible to include every classic pop song and a few tracks felt a little out of place but on the whole this is a great selection. You can't get more poptastic than The Rubettes or Abba. There are also a few tracks in there that I had completely forgotten about which is always a nice surprise. These all seem to be the original recordings apart from Paper Lace. However even when 'Billy don't be a hero' first came out there seemed to be several versions of it. Possibly this version is off an album as it's slightly different from the version I know but it sounds as if it was recorded in the same period as the original.
The chances are that if you're looking at this album then you're probably over 40 which means you've probably got a lot of these tracks on other albums anyway. Even so it's nice to have them all together. Definitely recommended.

Even the bad times are good by the Tremeloes is also the "wrong" version. They have used the album version rather than the re-recorded hit single version, which I know and love.
