In 1998 the Simitar label, a division of Warner Special Products, released several budget-priced discs featuring number one hits from the '60s, '70s and '80s, loosely based around such themes as Lovin' Feelings, Party Time and Smooth Love. Each disc presents the original version of these popular singles on a 16-track CD. Number Ones: Hot in the 60's highlights include "Stoned Soul Picnic" (Fifth Dimension), "Judy in Disguise (With Glasses") (John Fred & His Playboy Band), "Liar, Liar" (the Castaways) and "Reach Out (I'll Be There)" (the Four Tops). Despite minor packaging flaws, Simitar's Number Ones is a decent budget-line series.
