Jukebox Hits of the '60s [Collectalbes] Review

by Al Campbell

Collectables' Jukebox Hits of the '60s is an attractive package for consumers who want the biggest hits of the era. All 77 songs spread out over these five discs are recognizable. Unlike other similar sets, these songs are not re-recordings; these are the original hit versions. More than likely the casual listener will only need one track from Jimmy Jones, Ian Whitcomb, Gary Lewis & the Playboys, Deon Jackson, or Marcie Blaine. The one major flaw of the series, besides lack of decent packaging, is that while disc one has 25 tracks, the other four feature half the songs per disc. This could have easily been contained to a more cost-effective three-disc set.
