5.0 out of 5 stars Love this 2 CD set December 16, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I got this set a few weeks ago and have been enjoying it. Although I wasn't around in the 60's, I'm familiar with most of the songs on the set. My 4 year-old is very fond of the Turtles "Happy Together" and The Drifters "Under the Boardwalk". This is essentially the same set as the 1998 version and the cover is red, not pink as shown here.

Here are a list of the artists/titles (which I got from the 1998 version):

Disc 1
1. Simon & Garfunkel - Mrs. Robinson
2. Van Morrison - Brown Eyed Girl
3. Monkees - Daydream Believer
4. Four Seasons - Sherry
5. Foundations - Build Me Up Buttercup
6. Beach Boys - Good Vibrations
7. Surfaris - Wipeout
8. Tom Jones - It's Not Unusual
9. Dusty Springfield - Son of A Preacher Man
10. Turtles - Happy Together
11. The Zombies - Summertime
12. Overlanders - Michelle
13. Herman's Hermits- No Milk Today
14. Spencer Davis Group - Keep On Running
15. Booker T & the Mgs - Green Onions
16. Kingsmen - Louie Louie
17. Trini Lopez - If I Had A Hammer
18. Chris Montez - Let's Dance
19. Marmalade - Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da
20. Gary Puckett & the Union Gap - Young Girl
21. The Mccoys - Hang On Sloopy
22. Mamas & the Papas - California Dreamin'
23. Chiffons - He's So Fine
24. Everly Brothers - Cathy's Clown
25. Dion - the Wanderer
26. Animals - Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood
27. Easybeats - Friday On My Mind
28. Shocking Blue - Venus
29. Small Faces - Itchycoo Park
30. John Barry Orchestra - James Bond Theme

Disc 2
1. Archies - Sugar, Sugar
2. Diana Ross & the Supremes - Baby Love
3. Mary Wells - My Guy
4. Little Eva - Loco-Motion
5. Isley Brothers - Twist and Shout
6.

5.0 out of 5 stars An ULTIMATE COLLECTION February 25, 2011
By mr b.
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This two discs have a little of every kind of pop music in the 60's. From some hard to find " Itchygoo park " to "green onions" then to a sonny & cher tune. THere is even the theme to james bond on these discs. The only drawback I can see from these discs is that there so much different type of music some people would not like this. But if you want a collection that is varied a great sound and a great price . I would not hesitate to grab it ! SOB

4.0 out of 5 stars Great collection! June 6, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a great supplement to my core '70s collection of music! Funny, I used to 'hate' the '60s because it was so.... well, OLD. But now I like it, and welcome these songs to my .mp3 shuffle line-up!

My only negative comment is that the sound quality seems to be a little flat. Otherwise, I recommend this collection.

I felt like I had been back in the 60's again, although that is impossible. Much better then the music of today's youth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Father's Day Gift July 21, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My dad seems to have everything and I was trying to figure out what to give him for Father's Day. He loved this. He just bought some 60's CD's at the same time as I sent this one and he said the quality was much better than the ones he got.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great collection!
Excellent sound recording. This collection is the softer side of the 60's, mostly leaving out the harder sounds, such as Cream.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
Just found the content tracks to be disappointing. I probably should have been more careful in reading the product description.
