Anyone that was around in that sixties era, will know the impact that these instrumental records made. Will know what they are getting on the compilation. Personally, I would have rated this five stars, except for the fact, that some tracks are re-recorded. Three to mention, FOOTTAPPER, the Shadows, APACHE, the Shadows, and DANCE WITH THE GUITAR MAN, Duane Eddy. There may be more. Ok, if for whatever reason, the company issuing this CD includes re-recorded tracks, why cannot they state on the cover of the CD, which are the re-recorded ones. With the security lock on this CD, before I bought it, there is no way of knowing, which are original and which are re-recorded tracks.
However, there are still some great instrumental tracks on here. I was pleased, that WALK - DON'T RUN, the Ventures is the original. Also, the two Sandy Nelson tracks, still drum up a storm. Overall, the quality of each of these tracks is pretty good. Given the amount of time, that most of them have been around.
Another slight niggle, is that TIME IS TIGHT has been included, which is of another decade , yet a still popular recording, Sleepwalk, by Santo and Johnnie has NOT been included. While , another `non-footapping` track, THEME FROM A SUMMER'S PLACE, has been included.
However, I am pleased I have this CD. A lot of my favourite instrumental's, which provide many memories of those years, all on one CD.
