"This set contains songs common to other compilations from over the years. The only difference is that some of the songs are the mono single versions. In addition, a couple of songs, like THINGS I'D LIKE TO SAY, ANGEL OF THE MORNING and SEE YOU IN SEPTEMBER are not common to the zillion other compilations out there. There are also some less-known songs by artists, such as THE MAGIC GARDEN by The 5th Dimension and SOMEDAY MAN by The Monkees. All in all... not a bad set, but not a critical add to any record collection. The quality of the recordings themselves is excellent."

"As the fifth and final installment in the "Sunshine Days" CD series, this volume gathers up 16 more tunes from the later 60s that represent the lighter side of pop that counterbalanced the edgier rock emerging during the era. Here are 14 top-100 tunes including five top-10 charters, four from the top-20 along with a few lesser-known top-100 songs to add interest to an otherwise mainstream collection. The two tracks that did not see the light of top-100 day are the Grass Roots' "Melody For You" that only managed to get to position 123 and the b-side of the Fifth Dimension's "Carpet Man". Among the rarities here are the Sunshine Company's "Back On The Street Again" and the Sidekicks' "Suspicions". Though many of these tunes are available in stereo on other CDs, the compilers here chose to use the original mono mixes for tracks 1-4,7,11,13 and 14. Though many of the tracks are mono versions, sound quality overall is very good. Completing the set is an eight-page liner notes booklet that provides interesting backround info on each of the included tracks. Overall, a high-quality, eclectic collection that appeals to fans of the "sunnier" side of late 60s pop music."
