||Welcome sixties music Fan !
What you are about to see is a list of oldies songs (approx.70.000 titles) from my record collection (LP's, 45's, demo's, promo's).You'll find songs from three decades here, but the focus is on sixties music. In percentage this comes down to 60s (90%), early 70s(6%) and 50s (4%).
Which 1960s music genres are featured?
male/female vocal - girl groups - melodic pop - psychedelic - pop/psyche stuff (obscurities)- rock - instrumental groups
In the first version of the database, only Anglo-Saxon artists were included. Upon request I've included 60s artists from all over the globe(Europe, South America, Scandinavia, Japan,...).
Being a record collector of sixties music, I have a wide variety of musical styles, but my personal focus (read "devotion")is on obscure late 60s groups. Artists who only made one or two 45rpm's and never had any airplay. I'm talking about catchy melodical stuff and/or pleasent pop/psyche. Some may refer to this genre as "feel-good" pop.
Some examples: The Glory Rhodes: "I'm so happy" (1968), This Side Up: "Book a trip" (1968), The Carnival Connection: "Poster man" (1968), The Sidewalk Sounds: "Make the music pretty" (1967), etc . So browse with care not to overlook those gems...
Both the artists and their songs are listed in alphabetical order to make it easy to look up a name or a title. I've chosen to use the first letter of the last name for a solo artist.
- You'll find Petula Clark, listed under "C", so look for CLARK Petula.
-Paul Anka can be found under ANKA Paul, etc.
-A group like The Dave Clark Five will be listed under "D", so look for DAVE Clark Five.
-Other groups use the name of the lead vocal, followed by "and" the name(s) of the backing vocals. In such cases, like Paul Revere & The Raiders are listed as REVERE Paul & The Raiders.
Just click on the desired letter and you will be taken to a specific list.
