VA - Ready Steady Go The Sixties



Ready Steady Go! was a pioneering 60s pop TV show known for its youthful spontaneity, cool graphics, it’s memorable performances as well as its championing of exciting emerging talent. Widely considered to be a major force responsible for launching some of the Sixties biggest names including The Beatles, the Rolling Stones and The Who. It broke all barriers in music and fashion and it set the trends that changed the face of British music forever. It was daring and it was innovative and set the tone that anything was possible. The Sixties was a time of great hope, optimism and fun and this clearly shows in the songs contained in this set. On Friday at 6pm, Manfred Mann's 5-4-3-2-1 came crashing out of the TV and the screen announced: "The weekend starts here!" For anyone interested in music or fashion it was a must! In short Ready Steady Go! was a cultural landmark. The Ready Steady Go! The Sixties is a special collection recreating that magical era. It is a celebration of the greatest artists and songs of the 60’s including Manfred Mann - 5,4,3,2,1 (the show’s title song), The Who - Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere, The Kinks - Sunny Afternoon, The Small Faces - Itchycoo Park, The Beach Boys - I Get Around and The Animals - House of The Rising Sun.

Everyone who knows the blog "Old Melodies" or earlier "Wings of Dream" for many years,knows that there are large archives of music here since 2007 ... 98% of the links up to 2015 are dead. I will gradually be engaged in their recovery. This takes a very long time, so the answers to requests will be minimal and in no way will be accepted from anonymous users. I spend a very long time on my uploads. Please,find a couple of seconds to sign your comment or message. I hope for understanding...
