100 Hits: UK No. 1s

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
This five-disc, 100-track box set collects recordings that hit the number one position on Britain's pop charts, and it's a wide-ranging playlist of artists and songs, including Peter & Gordon ("A World Without Love"), Tennessee Ernie Ford ("Sixteen Tons"), the Specials ("Ghost Town"), Manfred Mann ("Pretty Flamingo"), Blondie ("The Tide Is High"), and many others. It's quite a tour of pop sounds, but keep in mind that there's nothing by the Beatles here, which skews things a bit.
