Summary

Summary

One of the most eclectic volumes of the Billboard Top Pop Hits series, 1969 spans everything from Nino Rota's "Love Theme From Romeo and Juliet" to the Ventures' "Hawaii Five-O" theme to Zager & Evans' "In the Year 2525 (Exordium and Terminus)." The 5th Dimension's "Wedding Bell Blues," Blood, Sweat & Tears' "Spinning Wheel," and Brooklyn Bridge's "Worst That Could Happen" add a touch of soulful pop to the mix, while Glen Campbell's "Wichita Lineman" and Oliver's "Jean" are some of the year's mellower favorites. Tommy James & the Shondells' "Sweet Cherry Wine" and Young-Holt Unlimited's "Soulful Strut" round out this somewhat unfocused, but nevertheless entertaining, collection of late-'60s singles. ~ Heather Phares
