5.0 out of 5 stars The End?, 30 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have written to both Fantastic Voyage and Acrobat regarding the future of these sets. Like the other sets, I thought British Hit Singles 1963 was due at the end of September 2013 for release early next year. Unfortunately I have received no response from either organisation. This is a pity since I have all the other sets and they are excellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mrs brown, 9 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of the better comedy programmes. The script and acting is very good. It is even funny when they leave the mistakes in the programme. I,m hoping there will be a second series. I would understand if others did not find every episode funny but the painting of each charactor , major and minor, is good as is the build up.

Give this a chance.

3.0 out of 5 stars Confused!, 14 Jan. 2011
There appear to be two (1960 British Hit Parade) Series released. One containing a Three package set and the other a two package set. Both state they are the 9th in the series. The set with photos of the artists on the cover states it is a continuation of the Acrobat Series, and outlines the tracks on the Amazon website. The set without photographs states it is also ninth in the series, and gives a write up which includes some titles.

I have collected these series from Volume One but I am now confused as to which is the continuation series. Can anyone (meaning the people issuing these discs) throw any light on the subject please?

3.0 out of 5 stars Gilbert Becaud, 14 Jun. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Quand Tu Danses (Audio CD)
I have been looking forward to receiving this item for many years. It was recorded in the late sixties. However, although the CD is advertised with 32 tracks, the CD only contains 16. Consequently most of the tracks I actually wanted are NOT on this CD.

I informed the seller of this and they kindly reimbursed me. I am still looking for the tracks I need and am annoyed that they are advertised on two CDs by this artist but not contained on the CD.

3.0 out of 5 stars Track Listing, 5 Jun. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gilbert Becaud (Audio CD)
The tracks themselves (all from the mid to late sixties) show Becaud at his best and he appears to be enjoying himself when singing the various songs presented. As I purchased the original tracks on vinyl I was hoping to listen to them again with more clarity. Unfortunately this CD is advertised with 25 tracks. However, on receipt you only receive a CD with 16 tracks. From my point of view that is not only sad because the three tracks I really wanted are not on the 16 track CD but it is also false advertising.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reverse Order, 15 Dec. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Even though there has been a change of hands with the company that produces these Hits series, they continue to be excellent value for money. For those who like to collect the original hits by original artists, these series are invaluable.

My only slight criticism is with whoever decided to put Part One with the songs from Part Two and gave the songs for part One under the photo of Part Two. Please sort it out Amazon.

3.0 out of 5 stars my review, 28 Sept. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There is little in the World of today's comedy that can touch the humour and use of words as the Goon Show did. This latest collection of four shows adds to the collection already re-recorded and digitally enhanced. Hopefully within time every show will become available.

4.0 out of 5 stars Missing show, 14 Jan. 2009
Much as these shows are appreciated, particularly in the order they were broadcast. It is strange that there are two versions of 1985 but no "China Story" from the fifth series.
