Description by OLDIES.com:

"Lightning Strikes" with this 24-song collection of '60s greats. The great Lou Christie song starts off this collection and includes "Downtown" by Petula Clark, "Rescue Me" by Fontella Bass, "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye" by Steam, "It's My Party" by Leslie Gore, and "Wooly Bully" by Sam the Sham and The Pharaohs.


Product Description:

Collectables' History of Rock: The 60s, Pt. 5 is a random but wonderful 24-track collection of pop and rock gems. It touches on the sound of British Invasion (Chad & Jeremy's "A Summer Song"), girl groups (the Angels' "My Boyfriend's Back," the Jelly Beans' "I Wanna Love Him So Bad"), soul (Deon Jackson's "Love Makes the World Go 'Round," Fontella Bass's "Rescue Me"), AM pop (the Cowsills' "The Rain, the Park and Other Things"), frat rock (Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs' "Wooly Booly"), and just plain great songs (Barbara Lewis's "Hello Stranger," Steam's "Na Na Hey Hey (Kiss Him Goodbye)," and Chuck Berry's "No Particular Place to Go"). 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 Angels, Lou Christie). As great as the songs are, it would have been nice to add a couple more artists. That is a minor point, however, and shouldn't keep anyone from picking up this entertaining disc. ~ Tim Sendra
