The "Swinging Sixties" swept the "Fabulous Fifties" aside, ushering in a momentous decade indeed. "It's Now Or Never"
our 30 instant time-capsules will whisk you back to 1960, the first year of the "Swinging Sixties". 25 of them were Number Ones in either the British or the American charts – or, in the case of The Everly Brothers' Cathy's Clown, Johnny Preston's Running Bear, and of course Elvis' It's Now Or Never, both. This is an unsurpassable single CD survey of all the year's biggest hits, as originally performed by the actual artists on those old cherished 45s. Rock 'n' Roll was still energizing the charts, but ballads, revivals, R&B, teeny-bop, instrumentals, doo-wop, country – all were there as well. Maybe you were there too and, as you listen to Elvis, Don & Phil, Cliff and the rest, just for 79 minutes you can relive those far off days of . . . is it really half a century ago?
