This generous four-disc set collects almost 70 original recordings of '60s hits, including songs by Bob Dylan, the Byrds, Elvis Presley, and Johnny Cash. Though the collection is undeniably comprehensive and eclectic, spanning early '60s songs like Bobby Vinton's "Blue Velvet" and Little Peggy March's "I Will Follow Him (Chariot)" and singles from later in the decade such as Harry Nilsson's "Everybody's Talkin'" and the Isley Brothers' "It's Your Thing," there's little rhyme or reason to the track list, and some of the juxtapositions make for a less-than-smooth listening experience. For listeners who don't mind hunting and pecking, the mix of big hits and unexpected tracks (a version of Dave Brubeck's "Take Five" with Carmen McRae on vocals; Captain Beefheart's "Yellow Brick Road"; the forays into country and early reggae) makes this more interesting than the average '60s comp.
