Product Description

* 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...

Format: Audio CD
In spite of the inferior version of Twist & Shout by the Top Notes and a repeat of the Joey Dee where the Danny Peppermint song would have done instead (though Ace DID issue it on a later collection it brings many little known tracks never reissued before such as Ricky Dee & the Embers WORKOUT which was a Stateside single in the 60s-an act which only made one more single and are not the same ones as Rick Dees & his Cast Of Idiots who made Disco Duck in the 70s taking the dance craze idiom back to the top in the States.
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

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great addition 10 Aug. 2009
By John B Goode - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
There are some great treats on this cd. Many unkown to me quality tracks.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars All Twistin' Edition 9 Jun. 2011
By Haynes Ford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is the third of these "Land Of 1000 Dances" cd's that I have bought. It is not as good as the other two primarily because these songs for the most part were never hits. I bought it for "Work Out" by Rickey Dee. This is only place I have ever seen this on cd. Some of these songs are just plain awful and deserve never to be heard from again. But at least I got the one song I wanted.
