#1 HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERon 14 October 2010
Mick Foster and Tony Allen have recoded a series of double albums each with a theme, this one focusing on the sixties. As with subsequent albums, the songs are cover versions, some specially recorded for the double CD while others are taken from their earlier albums, but all of them suiting their easy listening style. Here, there are songs that I rarely hear elsewhere although they were big hits in their day, notably Little arrows, which became a big hit for Leapy Lee, and the folk song Black velvet band, but there are also plenty of songs that I've heard on numerous occasions by several different artists.

On this album, there are several medleys, but subsequent album in the series do not contain any medleys. I'll confess that I'm not over-keen on medleys generally, though I've heard some great ones. I prefer to hear songs in full. On this collection, most of the medleys sound fine, though I'm not keen on Where do you go to my lovely (the Peter Sarstedt classic) being included as the first segment of a medley. The original song is well over five minutes long, but most of the verses have been dropped here. Other songs lend themselves more readily to the medley treatment.

Overall, this is a great collection despite my misgivings about one medley in particular. Foster and Allen are not to everybody's taste, but I enjoy their music and if you are also among their fans, you'll love this too.
