Description

  • Presenting 30 One Hit Wonders • UK Pop! – a fun compilation of records which provided the only UK chart entry for its respective performer.
  • This volume concentrates on the UK Charts, between the years 1956-62 and features an eclectic mix of artists and musical genres, from R&B to teen ‘rockaballads’, from doo wop to novelty items, from twangy instrumentals to death discs.
  • Juxtaposes million-selling, No. 1 hits like Ricky Valance’s irresistible cover of “Tell Laura I Love Her”, Bumble & The Stingers’ pounding “Nut Rocker” and Jerry Keller’s lightly rockin’ “Here Comes Summer”, alongside half-forgotten gems like Hank Levine’s haunting “Image”, Chet Atkins’ infectious “Teensville” and The Blackwells’ classy “Love Or Money”.
  • More than half of these tracks were originally US hits, so there are a lot of familiar names – although it seems astonishing that American hit makers like Carl Perkins, The Fleetwoods and The Diamonds only ever had one UK hit.
