History of Rock: The 60s, Pt. 2

Collectables' History of Rock: The 60s, Pt. 2 is a random but wonderful 20-track collection of pop and rock gems. It touches on doo wop (the Jive Five's "What Time Is It?," the Paradons' "Diamonds and Pearls"), garage rock (the Music Explosion's "Little Bit of Soul," the Five Americans' "Western Union Man"), bubblegum (the Archies' "Sugar, Sugar"), soul (Lee Dorsey's "Ya Ya," Aaron Neville's "Tell It Like It Is"), girl group (the Shangri-Las' "Give Him a Great Big Kiss," the Chiffons' "One Fine Day"), AM pop (the Brooklyn Bridge's "The Worst That Could Happen"), and just plain great songs (the Beau Brummels' "Laugh, Laugh," the Soul Survivors' "Expressway to Your Heart," the Turtles' "Happy Together"). The collection plays like an hour or so of really fun and diverse oldies radio, something that is getting harder to find on your radio dial every day. The only thing that makes the disc less than ideal is having two songs by some of the artists (the Turtles, the Shangri-Las, the Brooklyn Bridge). As great as the songs are, it would have been nice to add three more artists. That is a minor point, however, and shouldn't keep anyone from picking up this entertaining disc.
