I think in years to come this will be a collector's item. Fabulous list of songs on there, many of which I didn't already have, and loved the design of the sleeve and the CDs themselves, which are made to look like 45s. The facts given about each song were a lovely touch as well - many surprising facts that I'd never known. Gives the product an extra-nice touch. Would highly recommend it to anyone.

There are so many compilations out there, trouble is you can't own them all and
each one will no doubt have several numbers on that you love to listen to.
For me as always, it's having a collection of favourites presented in an unfamiliar
track-order as well as having a different selection of great songs which includes
the memories that count.
This selection in many ways gives a us a style journey through the decades, from
the sixties through to the eighties.
Though, like myself you'll no doubt have many if not all the numbers on-board
the 3-CD compilation, however if there are enough in terms of favourites, it's got
to be worth checking-out.
To give a flavour of what's on offer i'll pick out a few numbers from each CD to
perhaps help........on disc one.......'Love Affair' --'Bringing on back the Good Times'
'Bob Lind' --'Elusive Butterfly' ........'The Tokens' --'The Lion Sleeps Tonight' .......
'The Hollies' --'Bus Stop'........'The Cascades' --'Rhythm of The Rain' (One of my
favourite numbers from the sixties, as far as I remember, it was the 'Cascades' one
and only Hit)........and .......'Roy Orbison' --'Running Scared' ......just a few of the
sounds on disc one to enjoy.......on disc two........'Blondie' --'Sunday Girl' .......
'Bachman Turner Overdrive' --'You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet' .......'Mott the Hoople'
--'All The Young Dudes' .......'Chicory Tip' --'Son Of My Father' ......'R and J Stone'
--'We Do It' .......'Sweet' --'Ballroom Blitz' ......and......'10 cc' --'Life Is A Minestrone'
......again just some of the many favourites on disc two.......on disc two......'Michael
Jackson' --'Thriller' ......'Bananarama' --'Love In The First Degree' ......'T'Pau' --China
In Your Hand' .......'Odyssey' --'If Your Looking For A Way Out' .......'Bonnie Tyler'
--'Holding Out For A Hero' .......'The Blow Monkey's' --'It Doesn't Have To Be This Way'
...and........'The Bangles' --'Manic Monday' ......many of the great songs to cherish on
disc three...............I have randomly picked out a half a dozen or so numbers from
each of the 3-CD's trying to give a fair appraisal of the quality on-board.
When you come across a selection on compilation such as this, it's often a concern
of many that the sound quality isn't up to scratch, well, am playing it now, it's genuinely
pretty good.
I believe this 60 number compilation of memories would be a great addition to all Pop
-music lovers CD collection.

If you were born in the late 60's sort of era you'll love this..first C.D songs you have heard of but didn't know the artist..second C.D reminds you of growing up at school and third C.D all the songs you would put on a cassette in your first car !!!
Also sounds great on Ipod too !!!!

After skipping past the opening track by the vastly over-rated Tom Jones, there are a lot of classics on here by the likes of Dusty Springfield, Bobby Vee, Roy Orbison, Blondie, Sad Cafe, Mott The Hoople, Madness and Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes. A real mixture indeed, so possibly inevitable that there a couple of duff tunes as well, notably from David Soul and the aptly named Middle Of The Road.

Having heard that this compilation was by Phil 'the collector' Swern I thought this could be interesting, maybe he might include the much Sounds Of The 60's [Phil's other show]requested top 10 hit "Friends" by Arrival- never released on CD - but as it was a hit I assume it qualifies . But No- apart from a completely unknown to me Paul Anka track the rest are well known and easily available on other compilation albums. Seems such a waste as I am one of those sad people who would have probably bought this collection just for the one track- Friends by Arrival.

Songs of the 60s 70s & 80s brought back a lot of good memories. Many of the songs i did not have in my collection & it was great to hear them again.

Very varied content but does include some I'd never heard before. Good value and some good oldies on here ...

Excellent Cd with a great selection of songs from three decades of of great music. I especially bought this compilation as there were some songs on it which could not be purchased as singles.
