 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;-

Betty Everett - It's In His Kiss (The Shoop Shoop Song)
Geno Washington And the Ram Jam Band - Bring It To Me Baby
Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger And the Trinity - This Wheel's On Fire
Manfred Mann - Mighty Quinn
P.P. Arnold - Angel Of The Morning
Stevie Wonder - For Once In My Life
Sue Nichols - Where Will You Be
The Barry Gray Orchestra - 'Joe 90' Theme
The Paper Dolls - Something Here In My Heart
The Showstoppers - Ain't Nothin' But A Houseparty
The Small Faces - Lazy Sunday
The Small Faces - The Universal
The Turtles - Elenore
William Shatner - Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds
