Overview

This generous five-disc set collects 100 mostly original recordings of '60s hits, including songs by the Animals, the Chiffons, Tommy James & the Shondells, and Cher. While the collection plays a bit fast and loose with the term "Swinging 60s" -- songs such as Little Eva's "The Locomotion," Bobby Vee's "The Night Has a Thousand Eyes," and Jan & Dean's "Surf City" come from before the decade really started to swing -- it still offers an eclectic and entertaining mix of British Invasion, girl group, bubblegum hits, and more. With highlights ranging from the Toys' "A Lover's Concerto" to Bobbie Gentry's "Ode to Billie Joe" and Jethro Tull's "Living in the Past," this is more interesting than the average '60s comp.
