Top Hits of the Sixties: Chart Toppers

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Collectables' Top Hits of the Sixties: Chart Toppers does indeed provide original recordings of some of that decade's biggest hits, including Roy Orbison's "Oh Pretty Woman," the Byrds' "Mr. Tambourine Man," the Statler Brothers' "Flowers on the Wall," and Paul Revere & the Raiders' "Kicks."

While it's too scattered to work as a proper collection, Top Hits of the Sixties: Chart Toppers has enough classic singles to make it worthwhile if you've been looking for some of the songs it features.
