Hard To Find Jukebox Classics 1956

Hit Parade CD #12303     $14.98     

With so many labels and so many CDs, you’d think it would be easy to find all the top hits from the fabulous ’50s. Not so! To remedy this musical misfortune, Hit Parade Records inaugurates its new year-by-year CD series with Hard To Find Jukebox Classics 1956. This exciting, audiophile-quality disc is bulging with 24 classic pop, vocal group, folk, and early rock ’n’ roll hits. All these platters made the Top 40 – sixteen hit the Top 10, three made it all the way to #1 – but just try and find these terrific songs today!

Hard To Find Jukebox Classics 1956 includes eight songs never available on CD until now, including Fess Parker’s “Wringle Wrangle” (#12), Dorothy Collins’ “My Boy—Flat Top” (#15), and the stereo single version of Morris Stoloff’s #1 smash, “Moonglow & Theme from ‘Picnic’.” Others, like the Cheers’ tragicomic “Black Denim Trousers” (featuring Bert Convey) or Tony Bennett’s rapturous “Can You Find It In Your Heart ” are very difficult – if not impossible – to find on CD these days.

Hit Parade Records is a new Canadian label dedicated to finding, restoring, and preserving lost treasures like these, and the label employs many of the same creative folks who lovingly compile those great Eric CDs – including Greg Adams, whose detailed liner notes with biographies of all the artists will fascinate you for almost as long as the full hour it will take you to listen to Hard To Find Jukebox Classics 1956! And, don’t miss Hit Parade’s other great collections Fabulous Fifties Divas and Fabulous Fifties Crooners, as well as The Complete Original Hits Of Georgia Gibbs.
