All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
There's nothing out of the way on this compilation, which is, after all, comprised entirely of Top Ten singles from 1964-1966. In fact, eight of them made number one. There's no thematic link, either. All that borne in mind, it's still pretty terrific music for the most part, and a very good value for a single CD, with 25 songs covering most branches of mid-'60s pop
ock. There are British Invasion classics Donovan's "Sunshine Superman," the Zombies' "Tell Her No," Petula Clark's "Downtown", girl group smashes the Dixie Cups' "Chapel of Love," the Shangri-Las' "Leader of the Pack," Betty Everett's "The Shoop Shoop Song [It's in His ...

ock Del Shannon's "Keep Searchin'," the Outsiders' "Time Won't Let Me," Gene Pitney's "It Hurts to Be in Love," the Rivieras' "California Sun". While none of these could be said to be items you'll never hear on oldies radio, there are at least a few marginally less overexposed items, like Barbara Mason's fetching soul ballad "Yes I'm Ready," the Larks' "The Jerk," and Terry Stafford's Elvis Presley-like "Suspicion." Like other volumes in this series, it's ideal for shoving in the CD player when you feel like hearing oldies without commercials or subpar filler.
