Billboard Top Pop Hits: 1968 is an inexpensive CD with great sounds of 1968 on it to entertain you over and over again. The sound quality is excellent; these songs sound just as fresh as the first day you ever heard them! Newcomers to this genre of music would do well to choose this CD.

Mason Williams kicks things off with "Classical Gas;" this features some wonderful guitar playing and the orchestration can't be beat! The strings, percussion and more enhance the beauty of this melody. I predict that you will enjoy "Classical Gas" very much. The Rascals also turn in a performance of their huge hit entitled "A Beautiful Morning;" they sing this to perfection and the backup vocalists never miss a beat as they harmonize so well. I love that percussion, too!

Bobby Goldsboro's "Honey" is a sweet tune that is sure to bring back memories; Bobby sings this with such passion and style that it really moves me every time I heard it. Bobby makes "Honey" a true masterpiece in his capable hands.

The Union Gap performs "Young Girl" with all their might, heart and soul. The arrangement works wonders and "Young Girl" is a very fine ballad that is timeless the more I think about it. The musical arrangement enhances the beauty of "Young Girl," too.

"Spooky" by The Classics IV is a tune you just may recognize when you hear it; and Jeannie C. Riley makes a big splash with her hit "Harper Valley P.T.A." "Harper Valley P.T.A." works well on many levels and Jeannie C. Riley delivers this with panache like the pro she always was! You go, Jeannie!

Moreover, listen for Dion to do his famous "Abraham, Martin And John;" this touching ballad still resonates with listeners today in our times.

1968 was a very emotional year on and off the radio. Songs like "Honey" and "Abraham, Martin and John" have always made me cry. And "Love Is Blue" very soothing. My collection of "Must Have" songs is a little more complete with this CD.

1968 gave us a lot of classics, and this CD offers a few that are buried in the mega-artists of that era. Classical Gas is in a "class" by itself. Three generations of music lovers in my family reach for the volume to crank it whenver those first notes from Mason Williams hit the air. Fast-forward through Bobby Goldsboro's "Honey" (with lyrics like, "she was always young at heart, kinda dumb and kinda smart," I'd rather my kids not have that one running through their heads, ever) on to "Love is Blue" and enjoy the rich harpsicord. Deep Purple's "Hush" actually makes me WANT to sing along with "na na na na, na na na, na na na" (didn't I just complain about lame lyrics?) just because it's GOOD listening. I wish this CD included a few more songs. It was well worth the price. This may be one I wear out from playing too much!

Universal , because the first time I heard these songs ; I had no idea what the words meant . I arrived to this U.S.of A during mid 1968, and these songs were being played all over . I was only 15, and fell in Love with this country instantly because of this music .Then, I had no idea what they were singing about . Today , I understand the words and I am still in Love . All memories attached to this Music bring back precious moments to my heart and mind. Gracias

I purchased this collection to replace a previous copy which was inadvertently damaged after 5 or 6 years of constant rotation. Clearly, I enjoyed this collection enough to purchase it a second time. Takes me back to the great days of my childhood in the 60s every time I play it! The strongest tracts are: A beautiful morning (The Rascals),Love is Blue (Paul Mauriat), Young Girl (Gary Puckett),Classical Gas(Mason Williams) and Abraham,Martin and John( Dion)

The original version of Paul Mauriat's "Love Is Blue" was impossible to find. I was so happy to come across this CD which includes it!!! The sound is great too on all the songs.
