Description

  • Presenting 30 ONE HIT WONDERS • US C&W! – a fun compilation of discs which provided the only significant C&W chart hit for their respective performer.
  • This Volume concentrates on the US C&W CHARTS between: 1949-62 and features an eclectic mix of artists and musical genres, from Hillbilly to Honky-Tonk, from Rockabilly to Countrypolitan, from Novelty songs to Death Discs.
  • Juxtaposes million-selling, crossover Pop hits like Vaughn Monroe’s original version of Riders In The Sky, Gene Vincent’s menacingBe Bop A-Lula, Wink Martindale’s cheesy recitative Deck Of Cards, Walter Brennan’s similarly-crafted Old Rivers, The Fendermen’s twangy Mule Skinner Blues, The Rooftop Singers’ Folksy Walk Right In and Bobby Edwards’ lilting title track, alongside half-forgotten Country weepies like Betty Foley’s Old Moon, Billie Jean Horton’s Ocean Of Tears, Charlie Phillips’I Guess I’ll Never Learn, Earl Scott’sThen A Tear Felland Vernon Stewart’s The Way It Feels To Die.
  • Also includes classic Answer Discs like Betty Cody’s I Found Out More Than You’ll Ever Know, Jeanne Black’s He’ll Have To Stay, Ralph Emery’s Hello Fool and Jo Ann Campbell’s (I’m The Girl On) Wolverton Mountain
  • Many of these discs crossed over to the Top 100, where they repeated their success.
  • We’re already, desperately looking forward to compiling Volume 2 in this series!
