AllMusic Review by

The second volume in Disky's super-ambitious five-CD Cliff Richard anthology, 1960s is a remarkable package in that it eschews the majority of the hits and delves instead into the album and EP catalog that is all too rarely investigated these days. It's a vast corpus to try encapsulating in one mere disc -- although Cliff Richard's forte was strictly 45-rpm, he also cut some of the finest albums of the era, and any attempt to cull a representative sampling of them is going to founder against the likes and dislikes of every fan out there. Nevertheless, 1960s does a great job of at least outlining the developments and distinctions that shaped Richard's career throughout the decade, and few listeners could argue with the inclusion of "Hang on to a Dream," possibly the greatest hit that he never had.
