Billboard Top Rock & Roll Hits: 1965 is a solid installment in this budget priced series of great rock and roll hits--this time from the year 1965. The sound is great and I like the diversity of the artists on this album.

Shirley Ellis begins the CD with her bouncy and upbeat sounding tune called "The Name Game." While this isn't exactly my very favorite song from this era; the song has its good points. I love the beat and the rhythm; and Shirley sings this with such positive enthusiasm you truly believe she loves every minute that she sings this song. The electric guitars and drums sound very good, too.

The Toys do "A Lover's Concerto" to perfection; this beautiful ballad is one of my favorites by far! The piano, brass and percussion sound awesome and they sing and harmonize like the pros that they always were! "A Lover's Concerto" is upbeat and even triumphant in its own way; and I really like that. Listen also for Gary Lewis & The Playboys on "This Diamond Ring." Gary Lewis & The Playboys never miss a beat!

"Help Me Rhonda" by The Beach Boys has that awesome and unmistakable Beach Boys sound; I love the lyrics and The Beach Boys perform this flawlessly.

"1-2-3" by Len Barry sounds like the great early rock tune I always remember it to be; this tune uses brass, drums, percussion, piano and more for a fantastic musical arrangement! Len Barry's voice is clear and strong and this enhances the number very well. The backup vocalists harmonize to perfection.

Sonny & Cher turn in one of their greatest numbers with "I Got You Babe." The percussion, drums and more enhance the arrangement; and Sonny & Cher sing this passionately with all their heart and soul. It shows when you listen to it, too!

Overall, this is one CD you can't afford to pass by if you like rock and roll from the middle 1960s. The hits are solid and they sound as great as ever.

Rock on !!!

In 1965 the British Rock Invasion was quickly becoming much more than the Beatles and this collection of hits shows that American music was starting to offer up something in the way of a meaningful response. Certainly the Beach Boys doing "Help Me Rhonda," The Righteous Brothers powering through "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" and Barry McGuire's "Eve of Destruction" are steps in the right direction. Opinion is more diverse regarding "Wooly Bully" and pretty much anything by Sonny & Cher. As every one in class knows, the rule of thumb when judging a greatest hits collection is whether you find five or more songs you would love to add to your music library. Depending on how extensive your personal collection happens to be right now, this one has got a good shot at passing that litmus test.

You should know all of these songs by heart, and they're all classics of 1965 pop. The elusive "Eve of Destruction" alone is worth the price.

This had several of the top songs from 1965. There were also several of the songs I remember missing .This was the year I graduated from high school and we are looking for music from that year for our 50th reunion

No disappointments as Billboard delivers everything expected in the top ten hit recordings of 1965. If these are the songs you want, you should be pleased with its recordings.
