The heavily-promoted and massive Time-Life "mail order only" series of CDs of about 18-23 years ago constantly reminded you on TV that "you can't get these in any store" and seemed intent, at the time, to corner the market on everything from the Big Band Era to Pop, Country, R&B, Soul and R&R. In addition to single artist releases, they put out year by year volumes covering the best hits beginning with 1940, interspersed with theme releases such as The `40s, The Unforgettable `50s, The Late `50s, Golden Goofers (novelty tunes of the period), and The Fabulous `50s. The one covered here, which emerged as a 36-track 3-CD budget box set spanning three decades (1940s, 1950s and 1960s), was released for stores, perhaps even as individual CDs in some cases.

Since there was little real competition in terms of sound quality and program notes at the time, I suppose quite a few bought into the mail-order hype, although it was quite an expensive venture since they also charged considerably more for each disc than the normal going rate. Now here we are with options like Ace/Kent, Acrobat, Jasmine, Bear Family, Rhino, Varèse-Sarabande, Razor & Tie, etc., and suddenly these Time-Life releases are popping up for sale used all over the place, and often at prices considerably less than when they were first issued.

Even so, this budget-box entry in the Time-Life series still contains the odd side that even today is not easy to find in a quality CD setting, and in the Comments below these are preceded by an asterisk (*) in the list where I show full credits, label details (Pop Top/Hot 100, Adult Contemporary (AC), R&B and Country) chart performances and peak periods (The Browns and their version of The Three Bells was the only one to make at Pop, Country and R&B listings).
