Another Saturday Night - 60s Giants of The Jukebox, put together by compilation producer Brent James takes us back to that booming period just prior to - and at the start of the 'British Invasion'. A 2CD set superbly mastered with State by State Australian Chart details along with extensive liner notes, the set features local chart hits from Tommy Roe, Johnny O'Keefe, Rick Nelson, Bobby Fuller, The Delltones, Jumpin' Gene Simmons, Mike Sarne, Elvis Presley, Del Shannon and many others who set the stage the for the hits that were to come.
