 Re Issue
In 2006 RD reissued the series as a 12 volume set. The running order was reworked, which made the set more 'generic' and less themed by disc. Several tracks were dropped, and others added * utilising tracks that I was unable to use originally due to there usage on other RD releases (a silly rule that existed at the time). Ironically the series was renamed 'Remembering The Sixties' but the dropped tracks were those that were more 'memories' than actual hits.

Dropped tracks;-


- Everly Brothers - Like Strangers

- Manfred Mann - Fox On The Run

- The Kingsmen - Louie Louie

- The Twisters - Dancing Little Clown

- The Twisters - Turn The Page

- Unit 4 + 2 - Green Fields
