AllMusic Review by

Collectables' Top Hits of the Sixties: Amazing Hits does indeed provide original recordings of some of that decade's biggest hits, including James Brown's "I Got You (I Feel Good)," Steam's "Na Na Hey Hey (Kiss Him Goodbye)," the Supremes' "Baby Love," and Roger Miller's "King of the Road." However, the collection's selections and track sequencing are somewhat random, bouncing from songs like Patsy Cline's "Crazy" to Len Barry's "1-2-3" with little rhyme or reason. Aside from featuring lots of '60s hits, the album doesn't really offer a cohesive listening experience, although it does feature hits like the Mamas & the Papas' "Monday Monday," Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs' "Woolly Bully," and Hugh Masekala's "Grazing in the Grass." While it's too scattered to work as a proper collection, Top Hits of the Sixties: Amazing Hits has enough classic singles to make it worthwhile if you've been looking for some of the songs it features.
