We won't be beaten by anyone. Guaranteed

This two-disc set isn?t a soundtrack to AMC?s impeccably styled series -- and it shows. Mad Men: A Musical Companion (1960-1965) collects some of those years? best examples of vocal pop and rock & roll, with a little bit of soul, bossa nova, and jazz thrown in for good measure. This is a solid, enjoyable collection; it?s impossible to call a collection that bridges Ricky Nelson's ?Travelin? Man,? Marvin Gaye's ?Ain?t That Peculiar,? and Stan Getz & Charlie Byrd's ?Desafinado? bad. However, it doesn?t have the inspired spark of the show?s musical choices, which blend Bob Dylan, the Decemberists, and Perry Como into a seamless reflection of the seismic cultural shifts of the Mad Men era. The collection does include a few slightly offbeat choices, such as Lloyd Price's ?Lady Luck? and Brook Benton's ?Frankie & Johnny,? along with more expected tracks like Tom Jones' ?It?s Not Unusual,? Sonny & Cher's ?I Got You Babe,? and Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs' ?Wooly Bully.? It?s hard to fault Mad Men: A Musical Companion (1960-1965)'s quality, but the set feels more like an oldies collection with Don Draper on the cover than an evocation of the show?s essence.
