Product Description

In 1962 Elvis was still king and retained his status as the top recording artist with a string of hits like 'Return To Sender', and 'Can't Help Falling In Love'. Male solo acts like Roy Orbison, Rick Nelson and Dion also maintained their chart supremacy with hits 'Dream Baby', 'Young World' and 'The Wanderer', all included on this superb 2 disc compilation.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This series depicting the great sounds that legendary 'American' artists recorded way
back in the late 50's and early 60's is another very collectable and interesting music
collection to own if like myself you have fond memories of that time or indeed just
want to collect the era's favourites.
A collection of 'U.S' recordings, err, just so happens this is not entirely the case with
this release, though in fairness the artists and sounds that don't hail from America
would have been massive hits both sides of the 'Atlantic' an example of these........
'Kenny Ball and his Jazzmen' with 'Midnight in Moscow'........'Acker Bilk' with 'Stranger
On the Shore' (two great Trad-Jazz numbers)........'The Tornadoes' --'Telstar'........
all three acts coming from the U.K....and of course 'Aussie' Frank Ifield' with his smash
hit 'I Remember You'
Also dotted around there are, what in the U.K were in fact B-Sides among the play list.
Putting all that aside, there is a collection of really great numbers on-board, though
collectors of music from this era will almost certainly own most if not all the songs
that appear on the 2-CD compilation, it does offer many great tracks in a different
play and selection order.
As I often do i'll highlight some of the sounds from each of the discs to perhaps help
you decide whether you wish to check out the entire play-list........on disc one........
'The Four Seasons' --'Big Girls Don't Cry'........'Elvis' --'Return to Sender'........'Freddie
Cannon' --'Palisades Park'........'Brenda Lee' --'All Alone Am I'........'The Kingston Trio'
--'Where Have All The Flowers Gone'........and........'Bryan Hyland' --'Sealed With a Kiss'

Format: Audio CD
VARIOUS ARTISTS, AMERICAN HEARTBEAT 1962, DAY2CD250

Another entry in the already popular American Heartbeat series of "year" compilations.

One Day Music have already issued 1957;1958;1959; 1960 & 1961.

The attractive nature of these 2 CD sets is achieved through the "look" and the content. Each issue has liner notes, a colour collage of comics, film posters & car ads. Liner notes by Nigel Cross. Great sound value.

Small colour photographs of Neil Sedaka; Ray Charles; Nat King Cole; Brenda Lee; The Beach Boys & Elvis Presley.

The sound transfers are of the best quality and are all public domain recordings.

Whilst many of the performers and the songs may well be familiar or strike a nostalgic chord there are some that I have never heard of so here is a little info on those I could not remember...I bet you know them all!

Eva Narcissus Boyd (1943 – 2003), known by the stage name of Little Eva, was a successful pop singer. Although some sources claim that her stage name was inspired by a character from the novel Uncle Tom's Cabin, she stated in an interview that she was named after her aunt, which prompted her family to call her "Little Eva." CD1/3

1962 saw her recording "The Loco-Motion" go to number 1 on the US & US R&B charts and to number 2 in the UK charts. The same year also saw "Keep Your Hands Off My Baby" enter the US & UK charts but it was not as popular as her first big hit.

Thomas David "Tommy" Roe (born May 9, 1942, Atlanta, Georgia) is a pop music singer-songwriter. He is now best remembered for his hits "Sheila" (1962) and the later entry "Dizzy" (1969).
