The independent reissue label Collectables Records concentrates on pop oldies, and, according to the sleeve note to this two-CD, song set, its contents "were chosen, based on listener requests from the top 50 playlists of America's major 'oldies' stations.
What it does contain is a collection of chart singles of various sorts from the '60s, sequenced randomly so that, for example, the Crests ' "Trouble in Paradise" from is followed by the Brooklyn Bridge 's hit "The Worst That Could Happen. The odd transitions are made less wrenching musically those who actually remember the '60s will still be put out because so much of this music, of whatever Tänäki Päivänä - Dyniz - RST, is light pop.
This is a collection that would have you believe there was no British Invasion, and that Motown Records never existed. In fact, of the 30 top singles artists of the decade, only Dion is represented. On the other hand, 15 one-hit wonders are included i. Of the 48 tracks, six were number-one hits, while 35 made the Top Ten. But even Collectables' claim about listener requests rings false: Can the Jive Five 's "What Time Is It," which topped out at number 67 inreally be a big listener request item maybe, among doo wop fansmuch less the Blue Jays ' sole chart entry, "Lover's Island," which got to number 31 in ?
