America's Greatest Hits 1959 (CD)


$ 21.30 $ 24.99


'America's Greatest Hits' provides the annual collection of the biggest hits of the year in the Billboard charts

Many of the tracks are, inevitably, well-known hits, which went on to score chart success outside the US, including tracks by well-known artists alongside more obscure hits by artists such as Billy Grammer, Travis & Bob, Phil Phillips With The Twilights, Jerry Wallace With The Jewels and The Exotic Sounds Of Martin Denny.

The whole collection is a highly entertaining trawl through the American music scene of the time. It captures the essence of the strands of musical creativity that were active at the time, from great R&B artists through second-wave rock 'n' rollers and some fascinating musical novelties, as well as classics like Wilbert Harrison No.1 version of 'Kansas City' and The Coasters 'Along Came Jones'

As ever, it includes comprehensive booklet notes with commentary on every track as well as the distinctive series packaging.

It is likely to appeal to the many collectors who enjoy these completest anthologies, and will hopefully provide useful programming for the specialist radio programmes which feature pop nostalgia.
