* 2009 will mark the 50th anniversary of the release of Hank Ballard's `The Twist', the b-side which launched one of the biggest worldwide dance crazes of the last century, and of all time.
* To celebrate the dance that got the whole world out of their armchairs and gyrating across the floor, Ace has devoted a whole CD in its occasional "Land Of 1000 Dances" series to the unique phenomenon that was and forever will be the Twist.
* Not everybody could come to our Twist party, but we managed to persuade many of those who participated to go "roundandaroundandaupandadown" one more time for posterity.
* The inevitable Ace mixture of high-profile hits and downright obscurities line up side by side in an attempt to get everyone twistin' the night away, just like we did half a century ago.
* Almost all of these tracks (and indeed many of the artists) are making their first appearance on Ace in this compilation.
* We're gonna do the twist, and it goes like this...

A wonder knowing the Ace label they never included the Frank Sinatra or Steve Lawrence songs.
Still there was enough left to do a 2nd volume

Some are very much novelty tracks - Murray the K for example. And a Lawrence Welk impersonation? Hilarious, anyway.
It's a little disappointing to see 3 tracks from earlier cds in this Ace series; Peppermint Twist is here again, and in the same stereo - would have been nice to get the MIA mono edition; some of the great tracks I'm unfamiliar with are in wonky stereo, such as Petula Clark's delightful French Ya Ya Twist.
Actually though. it's nice to hear a couple of Twist tracks from Britain and France.
And I'm sorry Cameo-Parkway has missed the boat again. No Chubby Checker, Dee Dee Sharp, etc.
