Unlike other compilation CDs I've bought, this one is a winner. You will NOT be searching on the web for a track just to see if you're listening to the real or an elevatorized version. You will KNOW in the first minute that it's the real thing. You'll recognize all the tracks and love them and not feel ripped off in any way, shape, or form.

I really enjoy almost all of the songs on this CD. It is one of the best 60's collection CDs ever. It has a wide variety of songs, almost all of them easily recognizable. All in all, a very worthwile CD for listening to anytime!

Chart Toppers: Rock Hits of the 60s gives us a budget priced CD with fifteen great tunes from the 1960s. This is sure to bring back memories for those of us who first heard these tunes on the radio; and anyone wanting a good sampling of great 1960s music should check out this CD.

The Kinks start it off with a bang as they do their "You Really Got Me." The electric guitars work great and the percussion works well. They don't miss a note! I like the minor keys they use for "You Really Got Me." Steppenwolf's "Magic Carpet Ride" really rocks with that `60s sound and just a touch of country to spice up the arrangement. Steppenwolf does this really well; and the organ sounds very good, too.

Moreover, listen for "Hang On Sloopy" by The McCoys. This tune has a great beat and it still swings pretty well; the chorus features great harmonizing and the arrangement makes good use of the guitars and the percussion. "Green Onions" by Booker T. & The MG's is easily a major highlight of this album; this is one cool instrumental tune that'll knock your socks off if you haven't heard it already! "Green Onions" has some awesome guitar, too.

"I Fought The Law" is a rocking ballad that tells a cool story done solid by The Bobby Fuller Four; this rockin' ballad relies on the guitars and there's just a twist of country in there to make "I Fought The Law" an even better number!

The Shangri-Las score a goal with their "Leader Of The Pack;" listen for a really cool arrangement! The Turtles do well on their "Happy Together;" this touching rock ballad always pulls at my heartstrings.

The album ends with "The Letter" by The Box Tops. This classic rock ballad is one you just may recognize--it's very good.

This is a compilation of originals. The real deal, and not a redo, knockoff, or tribute band copy.
Fidelity was good and it was worth it to hear Wild Thing, Hang on Sloopy, Green Onions, Mony Mony, and Leader of the Pack.
My only complaint, I wish there were more tracks or maybe a double ablum.

It was great listening to these songs by the original singers from the 60's. It brings back a lot of memories.
I always loved "Magic Carpet Ride." I am very happy I have this cd because I can relive these songs from that time.
