• Various Artists - Chills & Fever - 30 One Hit Wonders - US Rhythm & Blues

Presenting 30 ONE HIT WONDERS - US R&B! - a fun compilation of discs which provided the only R&B chart entry for their respective performer.

This Volume concentrates on the US R&B CHARTS between: 1956-62 and features an eclectic mix of artists and musical genres, from Doo Wop to Jazz, from Gospel to R&R, from R&B to early Soul.

Includes million-selling, R&B #1s like The Silhouettes' raucous 'Get A Job', The Spacemen's Jazzy 'The Clouds', Phil Phillips' Swamp-Poppy 'Sea Of Love', The Bobbettes' jaunty 'Mr Lee' and Barbara George's soulful 'I Know', to minor R&B chart items like Elton Anderson's 'The Secret Of Love', Prince La La's 'She Put The Hurt On Me' and The Halos' 'Nag'.

Also features much-loved Doo Wop classics like The Monotones' infectious 'Book Of Love', The Impalas' falsetto-driven 'Sorry' and The Jarmels' 'A Little Bit Of Soap', alongside early Soul classics like The Sims Twins' 'Soothe Me', Johnnie Morisette's 'Meet Me At The Twisting Place', Nathaniel Mayer's 'Village Of Love' and Benny Spellman's 'Lipstick Traces'.

Many of these discs crossed over to the Top 100, where they repeated their success.
