The second volume of K-Tel U.K.'s Back to the 60's series is much like the first, in that it is made of inferior re-recordings -- not the originals. Not to be confused with the multi-volume set released in the States (the graphic design for that series is relatively plain, but just as poor as it is here), this set includes 18 renditions of major '60s hits (most of which originated during the early half of the decade), such as Sam & Dave's "Soul Man," Fontella Bass' "Rescue Me," the Crystals' "Then He Kissed Me," and Eddie Floyd's "Knock on Wood." Don't go into this expecting to get anything more than what you pay for (if that).
