This compilation, Lollipop, is mostly comprised of music from the 60s, with some also from the 50s and the very start of the 70s. It is kind of an uncommon slice of music from the era, with, for example, doo wop, French pop, first wave ska, and a bit of soul and calypso and African music and early rock and roll.
