Format:Audio CD
In this Time-Life release you get 22 of the top songs that you would have heard prominently sometime in 1968 and in excellent sound reproduction with informative liner notes. Only one (track 2) is represented by the album cut as opposed to the 45-rpm single or juke box versions, but all will bring back memories of that year. Some 67 reached # 1 in their 45-rpm form and all but 3 were Top 10s. Of those 3, 2 were Top 40s with the only one falling outside the Top 40 being Joe Cocker's debut hit at track 10. The full contents and details are:

1. Nobody But Me - The Human Beinz - the Youngstown, Ohio band covered this 1962 Isley Brothers release and took it to # 8 Billboard Pop Hot 100 in Dec 1967-Jan 1968 as Capitol 5990. They avoided becoming One-Hit Wonders by virtue of a lowly # 80 in March 1968 with a cover of the 1962 Bobby Bland hit Turn On Your Love Light;
2. Magic Carpet Ride - Steppenwolf (LP version) - The famed L.A. band had this reach # 3 Hot 100 in Oct-Nov as Dunhill/ABC 4161;
3. Mony Mony - Tommy James & The Shondells - from Dayton, Ohio this was also a # 3 Hot 100 for them in April-May as Roulette 7008;
4. Cowboys To Girls - The Intruders - best hit of 14 for this Philadelphia group at # 1 R&B and # 6 Hot 100 in April-May as Gamble 214;
5. People Got To Be Free - The Rascals - first # 1 (as well as # 14 R&B) for the New York quartet after 7 hits as The Young Rascals - July-Sept as Atlantic 2537;
6. Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing - Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell - # 1 R&B/# 8 Hot 100 May-June as Tamla 54163;
7. I Heard It Through The Grapevine - Marvin Gaye - # 1 Hot 100 and R&B for 7 weeks each Dec 1968 - Feb 1969 as Tamla 54176;
8. Soulful Strut - Young-Holt Unlimited - # 3 Hot 100/R&B Dec 1968-Jan 1969 as Brunswick 55391;
