Product Description

Product Description

The year of 1957 was probably the last one in which America would rule the rock'n'roll waves, but our compilation contains all the elements that would soon give the rest of the world the blueprint for writing their own chapters in the glorious history of pop music. This 2 disc set includes hits from the likes of the Everly Brothers, Frankie Laine, Debbie Reynolds, Buddy Holly and the Del-Vikings.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not all originals 19 April 2014
Format:Audio CD
Intending buyers should be aware that these are not all the ORIGINAL HIT VERSIONS! There are some remakes, including Anka's 1962 RCA remake of "Diana", and a stereo remake of "Young Love" by Tab Hunter which is a faster tempo than the original Dot hit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another good year... 11 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD
American Heartbeat, 1957

This addition to the popular One Day Music series brings a further 50 tracks for your nostalgic entertainment. The liner notes are by Brian Parks who has provided many such resumes for the label. Attractive and colourful sleeve and inner liners with 1950s imagery. As with many 1950s compilations you are on the musical cusp of a decade. You will hear many of the well known performers of the earlier years along with new sounds. The running times are CD1: 60.37 & CD2: 61.32.

Here are some of the artists featured...

Johnnie & Joe were an American R&B vocal duo from The Bronx borough of New York City, who were best known for their 1957 hit "Over the Mountain, Across the Sea."
"Over the Mountain, Across the Sea", written by Rex Garvin, went to Number 3 on the R&B chart and Number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100, it returned to the pop charts in 1960, peaking at Number 89 the second time around.

Mickey & Sylvia was an American R&B duo,composed of Mickey Baker and Sylvia Vanderpool. They were the first big seller for Groove Records. Mickey was a music instructor and Sylvia one of his pupils. Baker was inspired to form the group by the huge success of Les Paul & Mary Ford. They had a Top 20 hit with "Love Is Strange" in 1956, which sold over one million copies and was awarded a gold disc. It made Number 11 on the US chart and Number 1 on the R&B chart.

Buddy Knox (1933-1999) recorded three songs at Petty's recording studio, most notably "Party Doll" that later was released on the Roulette label and went to Number 1 on the Cash Box record chart in 1957.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good collection 14 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Good collection let down by hard to read short liner notes. I have had other releases the same kind of thing with very good liner notes. This is poor.
