Top Singles of the Sixties is a budget-priced collection featuring ten pop hits from the '60s, all released on MCA Records. There's no rhyme or reason to the compilation -- it features everything from the mainstream pop of "Hello Dolly" and "Moody River" to the bublegum of "Dizzy" and "1-2-3," Barry McGuire's faux-Dylan "Eve of Destruction," Strawberry Alarm Clock's psychedelic pop "Incense and Peppermint" and the Grass Roots' splendid blue-eyed soul stomp, "Midnight Confession." Nevertheless, it's a fun disc that is worth its price for casual fans who just want hits and don't really care about context.
