There's a certain chemistry involved in the make-up of compilations - the dynamics of which are difficult to determine. These include discernment, dramatic use of tonal light and shade, an inherent understanding of the musical genres involved (including their relationship to one and other) and an intelligent approach to design.
These are the factors that have made Golden Age Of American Rock'n'Roll arguably the best-selling series of its kind and, for many, the only reliable way to purchase those treasured early American pop classics.
Using the same exacting criteria, this concept has now been logically extended into the mid to late-60s in the form of an exciting new series titled CHARTBUSTERS USA.
Unlike the majority of 60s hits compilations that have usually been thrown together randomly by some marketing department, CHARTBUSTERS USA functions both on a historical level and as a superlative listening experience. It is a proud thoroughbred in a market teeming with mongrel product. One glance at the track listing will tell you all you need to know.
Packed with 30 quintessential classics spanning 1964 - 1969 (most in stereo), it hangs together like a dream thanks to careful programming and Duncan Cowell's state-of-the-art mastering. The accompanying 20-page full-colour booklet looks good enough to eat. Furthermore, it's a great summer record and perfect windows-down in-car entertainment. Be in at the start!
