Top Hits of the Sixties: Groovy Hits is one of several releases in Collectables' Top Hits of the Sixties series. This eclectic collection of rock, bubblegum pop, soul, and skiffle surveys the wonderful eclecticism that was prevalent throughout the decade. However, the one major flaw in the series seems to be the erratic track sequencing from start to finish. Having employed a sense of chronological progression or theme would have made this CD a lot stronger, as Lonnie Donegan's wonderful "Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavor On the Bedpost Overnight" seems to make a jarring transition and horrifying juxtaposition when placed next to the soulful rendition of "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" performed by Gladys Knight & the Pips. Overall, it's a wonderful compilation filled with top-notch songs. But having a custom program function on your CD player will make listening to this even more enjoyable.
