I bought this CD for my mum, because she loves this kind of music and she has all of the other Dreamboats albums. After listening to it, mum thought it was superb and I agreed with her. There is not a single "filler" track on this album and we knew all of the songs. We did notice, though, that this album seemed to be skewed more towards the 1960s music, whereas all of the previous Dreamboats albums tended to feature predominantly 1950s songs. We still thought that it was excellent, though and one of the very best albums in this collection so far. I have no hesitation in giving this album the maximum five stars, without any complaints at all. A superb album and we hope that there are many more to come in this vein. I recommend it to other fans of this series, or anyone who enjoys music of this era. As close to the perfect 1960s album as it is possible to get.

An excellent selection of 1960's Hits. It even has the full version of 'Hang On Sloopy'
by The McCoys. Until now, I did not realise that the 1965 Single, (UK No.5/USA No.1),
was edited. A verse was removed. But, the longer version is included on this Double CD.
As far as I know, it is the first time that any UK Compilation has included the longer
version of that Hit. So that was a bonus, & a big surprise.

For me 'Dreamboats' collection remains a highly collectable music series.
In some of the earlier issues many noticed the inclusion of one or two repeated
tracks from earlier issues on-board, the songs chose were usually classic-sounds
and for me fitted in with a different play-list, remaining a great listen.
Happily the 'Dreamboats' series appears to have widened the period of selection
some, opening up many possibilities for future releases, I believe as with this issue
we'll always have an occasional inclusion we've seen before, however overall
'Dreamboats and Miniskirts' has moved a little deeper into the Sixties than the
'Petticoats' which also included tracks from the late Fifties.
Obviously copyright issues and possibly cost prevents the inclusion of many artists
and songs many would like to see included, however what we have on-board this
release is many favourite songs from the golden sixties.
Which makes this a must for collector's of pop-sounds of the era covered, true many
collectors again will have most if not all the songs on-board either by compilation
or actual specific artists CD's and of course many like myself will own much of the
content on treasured Vinyl, however, again, for me it's all about hearing many
favourite memories in different song and play order selection.
On-board there is certainly a play-list to cherish...
I'll again highlight some of the great sounds to enjoy on this 2-CD compilation to
demonstrate the quality of what's on offer........on disc one........'Procol Harum' --
'A Whiter Shade of Pale'........'The Searchers' --'Needles and Pins'........'The Spencer
Davies Group' --'Keep on Running'........

This is a sequel to Dreamboats and Petticoats Summer Holiday which was released in 2010, so if you are thinking there are some great sixties summer classics that should be on this compilation but aren't, they are likely to be on the earlier compilation.

The opening tracks on each CD (Summer in the city, Sunny afternoon) are among the obvious summer songs here, along with I get around, California dreaming, Sunny and the closing title track. The other songs here are, for the most part, not summer songs as such, but they all sit comfortably on a summer album as they sound particularly good in the summer months. This particularly applies to Mr. Tambourine Man, Pretty woman, 1-2-3 and Keep on running, although the latter track might not apply if the weather is hot and humid, as it was on the day I posted this review. :-)

If you don't own the still-available earlier album, this one will still sound great on its own. As a pair, they make an outstanding collection of sixties summer music.

I love this CD and play it regularly in the car whilst singing along. I remember all these songs from when I was just a little girl.
I also remember them being played on radio, and the groups that sang them being on TV.
Happy days.
Brilliant songs.
Why not buy it and take a walk down memory lane, or buy it for someone else and let them reminisce.

They will love you for it!!!

Absolutely great CD. It has all very well know numbers on it that takes you right
back as far as I remember from 60's. There was only one I did not particularly like
and that is not bad bearing in mind the number of numbers on it. I cannot stop
playing it.
