    This is an interesting collection of some of the best sixties' pop. On the good side, you've got the Strangeloves' "I Want Candy". They remind me of cavemen (must be the percussion track). Goffin-King's beautifully subtle "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" (much more aptly titled "Will You STILL Love Me Tomorrow"), the Shangri-La's brilliant "Remember (Walking In The Sand)", the punk-before-its-time "Liar Liar" by the Castaways and the certified "Beatles" classic, "Lies" by the Knickerbockers. Great to have Slim Harpo's "Scratch My Back" included here, too. And I hate to say it, but "Runaway" by Del Shannon still sounds damn great to me.
    Oh the follies of youth. One of the first records I ever bought was "Surfin' Bird" by the Trashmen. I thought it was a good record. Of course, I used to think Nights In White Satin" by the Moody Blues was fab and gear and all that. Now I know what artsy farts the Moodys were, and I find "Surfin' Bird" fairly difficult to listen to. But I'll take it over ANY Moody Blues song!
    Don't really need B.J. Thomas' "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry". I'll stick with Hank Williams.
    And one song that really gives me a major pain is the incredibly lame "Hang On Sloopy". Except for the spirited guitar solo by Derringer, it's like a slow, stifling "Louie Louie". Where are the Kingsmen when we need 'em? As far as "Rhythm Of The Rain", "Blue Moon", "A Little Bit Of Soap" -- I could die happily and never hear them again. Not bad songs, just terminally overplayed.
