London American Label Year By Year 1959 / Various [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import)
2010 compilation that collects the celebrated A-sides of singles issued by the London-American label in 1959. London-American was the prime UK outlet for U.S. hits in the 1950 s and 1960 s, introducing the British public to America's biggest stars. This volume in this critically acclaimed and best selling series moves US backwards, for the first time, into the 1950 s and offers another stunning cross-section of hits, flips, flops and rarities that found their way across the Atlantic ocean, for the first time. As always, our selection is laden with big names of the era and with big Hot 100 hits, some of which actually found their way into the UK Top 40 too. Iconic US labels that this collection draws on include Chess, Sun, Atlantic, Big Top, Ace (MS), Specialty, Jamie and many more. Ace Records.
