#1 Hits Of The 1960s

The Lennon Sisters sing The Beatles! Yep, this 1964 album, #1 Hits Of The 1960s, features The Lennon Sisters singing I Wanna Hold Your Hand. It's a hoot. So is their version of Hit The Road Jack. "What you say?!"

The rest of the album is great. The girls shine on many of the pop tunes, and do a standout version of Our Day Will Come. Kathy takes the lead in many of the solo spots - her low voice is so appealing. They hold their own with girl groups of the day. Pity they weren't played on the radio.

The track listing is:

Side A

1. You Don't Own Me
2. Hit The Road Jack
3. There! I've Said It Again
4. Our Day Will Come
5. I Will Follow Him
6. Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

Side B

7. I'm Leaving It Up To You
8. Theme From A Summer Place
9. The End Of The World
10. I Wanna Hold Your Hand
11. Don't Break The Heart That Loves You
12. Everybody's Somebody's Fool

Oddly, the side B listings on the back cover as well as the record itself are all out of order. A minor goof on an outstanding album.
