The 100 Hits Sixties Pop collection is a mixed bag of undisputed classics, well known hits, some lesser known tunes, and a few rather obscure selections. Most of the songs are by American artists, and are in the rock, soul, and pop genres. Several artists are featured as many as three times, so the diversity isn't as great as it could be. The track listing is provided at Amazon, so you can decide for yourself if the collection is to your liking. There may be some eclectic selections, but there really isn't a dud in the bunch.
Spanning the genres, the absolute classic tunes include "I'm A Believer" (The Monkees), "Respect" (Aretha Franklin), "Happy Together" (The Turtles), "Windy" (The Association), "Soul Man" (Sam and Dave), and "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay" (Otis Redding). There are many minor hits, with a heavy emphasis on soul and American pop. Except for The Yardbirds' "Over Under Sideways Down", there isn't much of a contribution from British artists.
At the far end of the spectrum are some heavy numbers that may not fit most people's definition of "pop", including "I Wanna Be Your Dog" (The Stooges), an abridged version of Iron Butterfly's psychedelic opus "In-A-Gada-Da-Vida", and a pair of Vanilla Fudge songs, "Season of the Witch", and "She's Not There". Among the somewhat curious selections are Arthur Conley's cover of The Beatles "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da", and Connie Steven's "Kookie Kookie (Lend Me Your Comb)".
This collection provides an interesting sampling of music from the exciting and magical 1960's, when an unprecedented revolution in popular music occurred, and rock and roll exploded into the culture, and changed the world. Not arranged chronologically or by genre, the collection seems a little jumbled. While not the ideal collection of the biggest hits from the decade, this set could be of interest to those looking for a little broader musical perspective, and the music does seem to grow on you with repeated listenings.
It's a great series, though if you owned them all you would have a few repeated tracks.
