This must be the best '60s pop compilation you are ever likely to come across -- and such great value. True, it doesn't include the really big names like The Beatles or The Rolling Stones, but what you have here is the essence of '60s pop music, the songs and instrumentals which are instantly recognisable from that era. So, the first record I ever bought is included here : Bernard Cribbins' comic song 'Right Said Fred' with 'Hole In The Ground' on the flip side. Not really a pop song? Well, as other reviewers have already commented, the music of the '60s was so diverse, it encompassed pop, country and western, folk, jazz, crooners -- you name it and the '60s had it.
There are no more than 3 contributions from any one artist, and very few songs, I think, which you will not be able to remember. One surprising omission for me is 'Stranger On The Shore' which was another of my early purchases and a great hit at the time for Acker Bilk.
For the record, I am listing the tracks on Disc 5, as a previous reviewer repeated the tracks on Disc 4 by mistake :
1. JENNY TAKE A RIDE -- Mitch Ryder And The Detroit Wheels.
2. YOU'RE NO GOOD -- The Swinging Blue Jeans.
3. I LIKE IT -- Gerry And The Pacemakers.
4. DO WAH DIDDY DIDDY -- Manfred Mann.
5. POISON IVY -- The Paramounts.
6. YOU GOT WHAT IT TAKES -- Marv Johnson.
7. SABRE DANCE -- Love Sculpture.
8. I'LL NEVER GET OVER YOU -- Johnny Kidd And THe Pirates.
9. PRETTY BLUE EYES -- Craig Douglas.
10. HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN -- The Animals.
11. CONFESSIN' -- Frank Ifield.
12. ON THE ROAD AGAIN -- Canned Heat.
13. THE WEIGHT -- The Band.
14. ONE WAY LOVE -- Cliff Bennett And The Rebel Rousers.
15. BOOM BANG-A-BANG -- Lulu.
16. BIG SPENDER -- Shirley Bassey.

I am delighted with the selection of music; so many popular sixties collections around and most tend to be compilations of the No. 1 hits of the time - ignoring many great hits that were around then. However, is it me or has anybody else played it on their pc and found the list of tracks that comes with each disc is so off base it had me in stitches! It was a real challenge matching some of the hits on the uploaded list to what was actually playing - many times it was not even on that disc!
any ideas how I can straighten this out and match the list with the disc when it plays on the pc?

Although hits, I think, as a set, some of the middle of the road songs here are out of place. It is not meant to be a definitive collection, no Beatles, Stones, Kinks, Who etc, but I think it should have concentrated on the pop/beat side of the charts as this makes up the large majority of content. The MOR just gets in the way.
It has been poorly edited for CD as there are many tracks that start before the previous track ends, so if you use random play the beginning of songs are missing (very noticeable on Anyone Who Had A Heart).

This set of discs is one of the best i have bought for sixties music, if you liked the movie Pirate Radio this box set is the definitve sound of the days of Pirate radio in England, dont bother spending a fortune on the soundtrack to the movie just buy this box set, but if you are American be aware you may not recognise 80% of these tracks, as most of them never made it across the atlantic in the British Invasion.
This box set is the music i remember when i was a kid from 6 yrs old growing up from 1960 onwards , you will not have wasted your money on this Cd if you buy it,all the tracks are original songs, original artists, and original recordings.
i highly recomend this Cd

Excellent value and (unlike so many other lesser compilations) ALL original hits: Even the remastered tracks are the original hit performances.

Gives a true reflection of sixties music which was unimaginably diverse: The outgoing styles of big ballads, twee singers and orchestras sitting (yep, sometimes uneasily) alongside "Four Guys, three guitars and a drum kit" bands, Motown and Soul artists and strange hippy one offs. That's how it was then: For example the top singles of 1969 included "My Way" by Frank Sinatra and "Honky Tonk Women" by the Stones, the chalk and the cheese - no?

Anyway, if you want to buy a 60s album, this one is highly recommended because it's all original hits, and you get a lotta diverse music for your money.

A must for the 60's music buff. A huge collection of original recordings at a great price and with excellent sound quality. A complete collection of 60's hits in one package.
