Description

'America's Greatest Hits' series of collections for each calendar year in the 50s and early '60s

As adjuncts to our highly popular 'America's Greatest Hits' series of collections for each calendar year in the 50s and early '60s, we have already produced collections based on landmark moments in the Billboard charts - 'The First Top 100 Nov. 1955' (ACQCD7062) and 'The First Hot 100 Aug. 1958' (ACQCD7083). This collection highlights another musical landmark with the very first Hot 100 chart of the 1960s, the dawn of a momentous decade in the annals of popular music. It simply comprises every record in that chart, published by Billboard on 4th January 1960, from No. 1 (Marty Robbins' 'El Paso') to No. 100 (Rod Bernard's 'One More Chance', capturing the musical zeitgeist of the era, as pop music made the transition from the rock 'n' roll era into a period which would see equally iconoclastic developments in the genre. Alongside the major names there are a host of obscure and collectable records - minor one-hit wonders on relatively unknown labels which are not generally available on CD and which give a fascinating insight into the music of the time. It contains a 10,000+ word booklet featuring background notes on every record.
