AllMusic Review by

Hollywood's Best: The '60s is a terrific collection of 16 tracks culled from soundtracks in Rhino and Turner Classic Movies' reissue series, highlighted by classic songs like "The Girl from Ipanema" (Astrud Gilberto & Stan Getz), "Sunday in New York" (Mel Torme), "The Cincinnati Kid" (Ray Charles), "Lolita Ya Ya" (Nelson Riddle), "You and I" (Petula Clark), "Listen People" (Herman's Hermits), "Dominique" (Debbie Reynolds) and "Lara's Theme" (MGM Studio Orchestra). The '60s isn't as consistent as its three predecessors, containing too many ephemeral pop novelties and a weird outtake of Herbie Hancock and Freddie Hubbard's "Bring Down the Birds," but it's still first-rate.
