• Various Artists - Alley-Oop - 30 One Hit Wonders - US POP!

Presenting 30 ONE HIT WONDERS - US POP! - a fun compilation of records which provided the only chart entry for its respective performer.

This Volume concentrates on the US Top 100, between the years 1955-62 and features an eclectic mix of artists and musical genres, from doo wop to R&B, from R&R to novelty songs, from death discs to embryonic soul.

Includes million-selling, #1 records like The Elegants' 'Little Star', and The Hollywood Argyles' ultra-cool title track, to barely-remembered, semi-novelty items like Billy Graves' 'The Shag (Is Totally Cool)', Lonnie Russ's 'My Wife Can't Cook' and Rex Allen's preposterous 'Don't Go Near The Indians'.

Also features much-loved Doo Wop classics like The Penguins' irresistible 'Earth Angel' (often described as America's favourite radio Oldie), Johnnie & Joe's lilting 'Over The Mountain, Across The Sea' and The Edsels' irrepressible 'Rama Lama Ding Dong', amid a myriad of others.
