• Gary PAXTON - Meets The Hollywood Argyles

THE HOLLYWOOD ARGYLES were archetypical One Hit Wonders, topping the US charts in 1960 with the multi-million selling, worldwide hit 'Alley-Oop', but never quite being able to get a follow-up hit away.

As a result, their cash-in LP and subsequent singles have all become huge collectors' items.

This compilation features everything released by The Hollywood Argyles between 1960-62, including rare 45s and unissued demos, many of which have never previously appeared on CD.

The Argyles' Main Man, singer/songwriter/producer/entrepreneur Gary Paxton, had earlier been one half of a vocal duo, Skip & Flip, who'd hit the US charts in 1959 with a pair of million-sellers, 'It Was I', and 'Cherry Pie'. Both are included herein as bonus tracks, alongside a handful of Skip & Flip rarities.

Also featured are a number of Paxton's solo releases from 1962, few of which have ever appeared in the UK before, in any format.

Includes his cult 'answer disc' 'Alley Oop Was A Two-Dab Man', as well as the neo-legendary 'Spookie Movies'.
