The 15 tracks on disc one of Madacy's budget compilation Happy Days of Rock 'n' Roll 60s do not provide adequate representation of these artists at their best. Unfortunately all the tracks have been re-recorded and should be avoided. If you're looking for the original versions of classics from the era like "Two Faces Have I" (Lou Christie), "Up on the Roof" (the Drifters), "He's a Rebel" (the Crystals), or "House of the Rising Sun" (the Animals), look into compilations available on Rhino.
