"Another fantastic volume in the "Chart Toppers: Romantic Hits" series. This time around it's the 1960s under the spotlight, and what a wonderful selection of hits appears here. Although "Moon River" was a lovely Henry Mancini instrumental, I'd have liked it better if the record company had used Danny Williams' vocal version instead. Nevermind as both versions are as good as each other. Another main instrumental is the equally beautiful (and romantic) "Theme From A Summer Place" performed by Percy Faith & His Orchestra. I implore you to buy this - or any other CD - which features this track as everyone should own a copy of this outstanding piece of work. Yes, it really is *that* good!Other highlights include, "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow" (The Shirelles), "Dedicated To The One I Love" (Mamas & Papas), "Can't Take My Eyes Of You" (Frankie Valli), "Hey Paula" (Paul & Paula), "Let It Be Me" (Betty Everett - didn't Elvis once cover this?) and "Sealed With A Kiss" (Brian Hyland). Two other of my favourite tracks are used to close this compilation: Bobby Vinton's hauntingly beautiful, "Blue Velvet" and Percy Sledge's soul classic, "When A Man Loves A Woman".There are a couple of *lame* tracks too, it has to be said. Not to worry though, the next track you hear is guaranteed to be a great one! I recommend this, along with "Chart Toppers: Romantic Hits Of The 50s" too.Jon."

"I was only after the Sandpipers song, but this is a great collection of love songs. Classics all."
Excellent selection of music is marred

"Excellent selection of music is marred by short length (42:29) and lack of any information about the music or the artists. The recording date and number of weeks in the top 40 isn't even provided. If a CD is to take up valuable shelf space then it has to be more than this. This is the problem with the entire Chart Toppers series.
