The K-Tel-assembled compilation 20th Century Rocks: '60s Rock 'N Roll - Tossin' and Turnin' gathers up 20 well-known rock & roll classics from the '60s. The emphasis here is on the early '60s and, in particular, a rather innocent and lighthearted style of rock & roll intended to inspire dancing, not rebellion -- in other words, no Jimi Hendrix, Rolling Stones, or Beatles. Some of the featured performers include Chubby Checker, Bobby Vee, Jan & Dean, the Shangri-Las, Gene Chandler, and the Drifters, among others. A great way to bring back old memories of when everything seemed so much more simple.
