Overview

Time-Life's AM Gold '60s series provides a highly enjoyable history lesson. Each year is represented by 22 songs drawn from a wide range of sources, features all very big hits all the time, and plays like an hour of true golden oldies radio. The entry from 1966 collects the sounds of the West Coast (the Beach Boys' "Good Vibrations," the Mamas & the Papas' "California Dreamin'"), some fine British women (Petula Clark's "My Love," Dusty Springfield's "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me"), classic American pop (the Lovin' Spoonful's "Daydream," the Monkees' "I'm a Believer," and Cher's "Bang Bang [My Baby Shot Me Down]") and one of the great songs of the time, "Sunny" by Bobby Hebb. As usual with the series, you'll get a pretty good idea from this disc of what was going on in the charts, and you'd be hard-pressed to find a better single-disc collection of hits from the year.
