A GROUP of Sixties music fans are aiming to give today’s pop stars a run for their money in the race to be the number one album at Christmas.

A collection of TV show themes and songs from the decade has been put together on a new album called I Grew Up In The 60s and it has entered the 
official UK compilation chart at 15 after one week of sales.

The album includes songs from the Monkees and Tom Jones alongside themes from iconic TV shows like Dixon Of Dock Green. Gordon Campbell, who runs a music production company, was one of the co-ordinators of the project and expects it to rise up the chart.

He said: “It encapsulates the whole mood and feel of the Sixties rather than just the songs.”
