60 Hits Of The 60s

There is of course quite a variety of 60's box-sets out there too choose from, most of which are well worth
owning, every now and then there is a definite 'must-own' if you collect memories from those magical
times, have to say, this is one that fits that description, it really is, pretty much packed with genuine smash
hits.
Of course as is the case with many of these compilations they have almost certainly been released at an earlier
time, so it's worth checking to make sure you don't already own it.
Obviously, as i often say with these collections, it is unlikely you'll find a 'missing-gem' on-board you'll most certainly
have all that's on offer, however, it would probably stretched across several Compilations, having so many genuine
favourites on the one collection certainly freshens up the listening experience in my view.
Among the great sounds to be found on-board - 'Carole King' -'It Might As Well Rain Until September'......'Peter,Paul
and Mary' -'If I Had A Hammer' (also a hit for Trini Lopez)......'Bruce Channel' -'Hey Baby'......'Jimmy Dean' -'Big Bad John'
......and......'The Tokens' -'The Lion Sleeps Tonight'......just a few of the great hits that can be found upon disc one......
on disc two......'The Everly Brothers' -'Crying In The Rain'......'Ricky Nelson' -'Helo Mary Lou' 'The John Barry Seven' -'The
James Bond Theme''......'Johnny Preston' -'Running Bear'......and......'Ray Charles' -'I Can't Stop Loving You'.......just some
of the magical memories including upon disc two's play-list......and on disc three......'The Tornadoes' -'Telstar'......'Roy
Orbison' -'Running Scared' (worthy of better than the lower-order in the U.K Charts in my view, was more successful
in the States)......'The Cascades' -'Rhythm Of The Rain' (always been a favourite of mine)......'The Springfields' -'Island
Of Dreams' (Dusty who is featured on the cover was of course the lead voice of The Springfields before going Solo, I
actually saw The Springfields perform live with Dusty way back)......and......'The Drifters' -'Save The Last Dance For Me'
......again just some of the great memories harboured upon disc three......I have simply featured just five tracks from
each of the three discs upon this compilation to offer an idea of the quality of what's to be found on-board, in truth
many if not most were equally worthy of a mention.
I remember buying most of these sounds on vinyl way back when, i'm sure many of you also did so, this a collection of
unforgettable memories, currently on this site for less than £6.00.

Majority of tracks found on other compilations but of the 60 there were 10 I didn't have or were poor copies, & buying the cd was cheaper than buying the individual tracks.
Oh, & for the purists, The Isley Bros 'Shout' was a 1959 recording, & at 4.42 is a longer version than found on the 'Lemon Popiscle' series of cd's found here on Amazon
For collectors of 60's music still a good buy.
PS of the 10 tracks I didn't already have, 8 did not appear in the UK charts but were hits in the USA. Some compilations neglect to mention when they say 'hit' it does not necessarily mean a UK hit

This was bought for my Mum for Xmas to help with her relive the good times, the only problem is that I found myself wanting it as it contains a really good collection of songs, unlike a lot of collection CDs there are VERY few lesser known songs that are usually used as fillers but this collection is a quality listing.
If you like the 60's Rock'n'Roll stuff, you seriously will like this CD set.

Take a long walk back to the magic days of the 60's. For those born in the 40's and 50's The baby boomers, this set of Cd's will have memories flooding back every time you play it.
Great value too.

The sleeve to Dusty's Classics & Collectables 2 cd set has been used on this release but here's the strange part, Dusty is not included - however The Springfields are!!!

That aside this is a great 60's compilation from the best musical era ever.

This 3 cd set has a great mix of 60's music from start to finish. Loved the liner notes.
Highly recommend this cd set.

One for the car, I've found.
A surprisingly good (and big) selection with none of the twee stuff that many of these collections sometimes carry. Very enjoyable throughout. Possibly best enjoyed by those who remember the songs first time around.
But not necessarily. Recommended.

Excellent CD with so many well known tracks all by original artists. Great to sing along and/or dance to whilst doing chores at home or to have on in the background. Amazing price for 3 great CD's.
