This album takes you thru the 50,s 60,s,and 70,s all grade a hits.The songs on this 6 cd set will trully show you what radio was about,before the music became formatted,and pre-packaged,like many of todays radio stations.In new york city,we no longer have an oldies station,nor even a country music channel,on fm...How sad. I thank you from stewart L.

I purchased these six (6) CDs and I am very pleased with the selections and quality. They take you thru the decades and I knew all the songs. You won't be disappointed if you purchase this box-set. After all, Dick Clark's name is on this package.

There's very little that can go wrong when putting together an all-star compilation of number one hits from the golden years of rock and roll and soul music.

There are so many classics on these discs that one would never have to return to their oldies station again....because it would be playing these songs (plus a lot more Beatles and Stones, but you should have all of those albums already).

That being said, what is popular is not always great, and what is great is not always popular. A few tracks that I could've done without are "Eve of Destruction," "He's So Fine" and a few others (I don't like HSF just because of all the bull**** that track caused for George Harrison, and the fact that it's lame). Some of my favorite standouts that I hadn't really heard before are the poppin fresh and laidback instrumental "Grazing in the Grass," the mysterious country flavored tune "Ode to Billie Joe," and the light and funny jam "In the Summertime"...all of which are on the 4th and most solid disc.

The other discs are definitely decent to great, and overall it's an excellent collection for someone looking to get some tried and true old hits.
