Classics – The Fifties:
31 Amazing Stereo Hits

No matter how many times you’ve heard these classic Fifties hits, you’ve never heard them like this – unless you were in the studio when they were recorded!

Why? Because every one of these 31 original hits appears in jaw-dropping new or rare STEREO, most for the first time ever. Hearing the original hit versions of these all-time classics in crystal-clear stereo is like hearing them for the first time.

Believe it or not, 24 of these famous hits have never appeared in stereo in their correct hit-single versions until now. And these are really huge hits, like Bill Haley’s “(We’re Gonna) Rock Around The Clock,” Gogi Grant’s “The Wayward Wind,” Paul Anka’s “Diana,” and “My Prayer” by The Platters. And those are only four of the thirteen #1 hits on this CD.

These stereo mixes will surround you with vocal harmonies, orchestras, drums, and electric guitars. The swelling strings and stirring crescendos of The Skyliners’ “Since I Don’t Have You” and Nelson Riddle’s “Lisbon Antigua” will sweep you off your feet. You’ll hear instruments, voices, and other details that you never noticed before, on a selection of hits that span the full spectrum of Fifties pop music: R&B, rock & roll, pre-rock pop, orchestral instrumentals, and more! Check out the track list and then listen to the sound samples below.

You won’t find these exclusive stereo cuts anywhere but on this CD. These Stereo original hits are simply not available from download services like iTunes and Spotify. Includes a 12-page booklet with complete song-by-song annotation and liner notes by Greg Adams. Also, be sure to check out the great companion volume Hard To Find Jukebox Classics 1960-64: 30 Amazing Stereo Hits.
