Complete Pop Instrumental Hits of the Sixties, Vol. 2 - 1961 is the second in a series of releases that will definitively document the decade when the pop instrumental genre truly reached it's zenith. Rock, Rhythm 'n' Blues, Country, and orchestral instrumental singles all vied for a spot in the Hot 100 weekly charts. Bert Kaempfert, Al Caiola, Billy Vaughn, Sandy Nelson, the Ventures - these giants of the genre are all here on Complete Pop Instrumental Hits of the Sixties, Vol. 2 - 1961. But, so are the Viscounts, the Texans, the Don Shirley Trio & Jack Eubanks. Who, you ask? All of them scored instrumental hits in 1961, none of which have ever been on a CD before now. In fact, this 86-track, 3-CD set includes no less than 17 CD debuts and dozens of genuinely rare tracks - 50 in true stereo. That's nearly three & half hours of music!
