Add to cart

Dick Bartley, the best-loved oldies DJ in America, presents 18 tracks from the Golden Age of Top 40, a wide open era when bubblegum pop like Boyce & Hart’s “I Wonder What She’s Doing Tonight” could play alongside crazed psychedelic rock like Arthur Brown’s “Fire.” In these days of narrow-casting and micro-formatting, Dick Bartley helps us remember what made ’60s radio so great.

But the fun doesn’t stop there! Dick throws in Janis Ian’s controversial protest classic, “Society’s Child,” the Silkie’s Top 10 Beatles cover, “You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away,” Sir Douglas’s stoner travelogue, “Mendocino,” and Desmond Dekker’s 1969 freak reggae smash, “Israelites.” Classic Oldies 1965-1969 collects the wildest, best music possible, mirroring the great Top 40 stations of the late ’60s.

“Hi, I’m Dick Bartley – America’s Saturday night oldies DJ since 1982! Welcome to a brand new oldies compilation that I predict is about to become one of your very favorite CDs. There are 18 tracks of pure gold on this Eric disc, covering the years 1965 to 1969, and featuring several first-time-stereo debuts. It’s my privilege to play these great songs, and many more like them, on my two weekly ABC Radio Network programs, American Gold and Rock & Roll’s Greatest Hits. I hope you’ll enjoy every track on this CD – and that you’ll join me soon on the radio!”

Classic Oldies 1965-1969 has been digitally mastered in true stereo wherever possible. Many songs, such as the Ides Of March’s “You Wouldn’t Listen” (released years before their best-known hit, “Vehicle”) are sought-after rarities, and one track, “Peter Rabbit” by Dee Jay & The Runaways, makes its CD debut. Two other tracks, Procol Harum’s “A Whiter Shade Of Pale” and the Troggs’ “Love Is all Around,” although widely released, have never been available in stereo in the original versions – until now!
