Chart Toppers: Dance Hits of the 60s

by Chart ToppersChart Toppers




Priority's Chart Toppers series is an excellent budget-line collection, offering a strong selection of 15 original hits, grouped by a specific theme and decade, on each disc. Chart Toppers: Dance Hits of the 60's combines rock & roll, girl groups, surf-rock, R&B, pop, soul, psychedelia and pop-rock hits -- an eclectic bunch, to say the least, but the variety helps capture the feeling of the decade. A few of the songs haven't dated well, but for the most part, the selection of songs is terrific, albeit a little predictable. Among the highlights on the disc are Bobby Lewis' "Tossin' and Turnin'," Little Eva's "The Loco-Motion," the Contours' "Do You Love Me," the Surfaris' "Wipe Out," Jackie Wilson's "Baby Workout," Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs' "Wooly Bully," the Strangeloves' "I Want Candy," the Ventures' "Walk Don't Run," Spiral Starecase's "More Today Than Yesterday" and Lesley Gore's "It's My Party."
