Album Notes and Credits
Includes liner notes by Merrill Shindler.
Liner Note Author: Merrill Shindler.
The '50s edition of Casey Kasem's America's Top 10 is typical for the series. It moves confidently through twenty hits of the era, skimming the play lists of oldies stations everywhere for a rousing collection with none of the filler so often found in this sort of release. Beginning with the freewheeling blurt of Bobby Darin's "Splish Splash," the comp gets feet moving with Danny and the Juniors ("At the Hop") and Little Richard ("Long Tall Sally"), hearts-a-beatin' with ballads like the Penguins' "Earth Angel" and Ritchie Valens' timeless "Donna," and the teens screaming with the early rock 'n' roll faves like "Great Balls of Fire" by Jerry Lee Lewis, and Bill Haley's "Rock Around the Clock." Even the casual listener should already have a few of these cuts; for many of them, their hit status remains undiminished. Even so, America's Top 10 removes the chaff common to these comps, making it essential for any '50s music lover. In addition, the CD booklet includes liner notes and artist photos. ~ Johnny Loftus
