Hard To Find Jukebox Classics 1958: Rhythm & Rock

Hit Parade CD #12308     $14.98     

Superb mastering, a wealth of rare hits, and over an hour of rockin’ rhythm, 1958 style, on one disc–that’s the promise of this edition in the Jukebox Classics series! Forget those slapdash, bargain-priced oldies collections with wrong versions and terrible sound quality; Hard To Find Jukebox Classics 1958: Rhythm & Rock features the original hits by the original artists in audiophile quality, lovingly compiled and presented by people who really care about this music.

The CD debut of the original hit version of Sam Cooke’s “Lonely Island” and the US debut of the Kalin Twins’ soaring “Forget Me Not” are just two of 26 reasons to add this value-packed anthology to your collection. Swamp pop fans will revel in Cookie & The Cupcakes’ “Matilda,” and novelty lovers will delight over Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ “I Put A Spell On You,” which Rolling Stone rated as one of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

You’ll find Billy & Lillie’s “La Dee Dah” here, and Hit Parade serves double shots of hits by Jack Scott, James Brown, Little Willie John, and others, so you don’t have to buy multiple collections or a stack of best-of sets to get an artist’s hits. There’s plenty of variety, too, from rockabilly and R&B to straight-up rock ’n’ roll. Four stereo cuts and more rock ’n’ rhythm memories than you can shake a drum stick at make this one Hit Parade package you won’t want to miss!

Terrific Value! An incomparable selection of 26 songs lasting over a full hour and lengthy biographical notes by music writer Greg Adams, Hard To Find Jukebox Classics 1958: Rhythm & Rock offers loads of entertainment value for a song. It’s the first essential oldies release of 2009! (Also see Hard To Find Jukebox Classics 1958: Pop Gold and 1958: More Pop Gold.)
