  • Various - American Music Library – The Hits Of 1961 (3CD Boxset) (CD)


    The American Music Library is a major series from Fantastic Voyage and is sure to be of considerable interest to music lovers with an interest in accumulating a substantial collection of hit singles, without track overlap with our popular British Hit Parade series. Following the release of The Hits Of 1959 and The Hits Of 1960, comes the third hit-packed instalment, The Hits Of 1961.

    A Top 10 hit in America often translated into a hit in many other world territories. But not always. Among the 1961 US hits that did not chart in the UK are such famous recordings as Shop Around (The Miracles), Bristol Stomp (The Dovells), Ya Ya (Lee Dorsey), Crazy (Patsy Cline), Please Mr Postman (The Marvelettes), Hello Walls (Faron Young) and I Pity The Fool (Bobby Bland), as well as titles by Elvis Presley, Dion, Jackie Wilson, Chubby Checker, The Impressions and The Crystals. The American Music Library: The Hits Of 1961 includes all of these, alongside many less familiar titles of great interest to collectors of hit singles.

    The Hits Of 1961 is a 90-track 3CD set which features:

    All 42 US Pop 10 hits from 1961 that didn’t make the UK chart;

    All 5 additional US Country and R&B chart-toppers that evaded the US Pop Top 10 (and again didn’t make the UK charts);

    A further 43 hits from the US Pop Hot 100 that didn’t make the UK charts.

    So enjoy this survey of the biggest pop, country and R&B hits that missed out on the UK charts, as well as a selection of other Hot 100 hits for your enjoyment. The accompanying 20pp booklet is illustrated in colour and features notes by series compiler Austin Powell, plus US release information (label, catalogue number, credited accompanists and producers) and details of any UK equivalent.
