AllMusic Review by

A chronicle of 1966, a great year for Rock, one that saw the release of some of the snappiest, most infectious music of all time. These 22 selections represent a diversity of styles, indigenous of the Pop 20. Nancy Sinatra's "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'," the Hollies' "Stop Stop Stop," and time proof tunes from the Lovin' Spoonful, Paul Revere & the Raiders, and Cyrkle roll with harder edged bites like the Kinks' "A Well Respected Man," Eddie Floyd's "Knock On Wood," and Robert Parker's "Barefootin'." Motown magic from the Temptations, the Isley Brothers, the Marvelettes, and Jimmy Ruffin helps make this a winner and welcome addition to any collection.
