Back in the 1950s, reaching No. 1 on the record charts was the pinnacle of any entertainer’s career. A select few like Perry Como and Johnnie Ray achieved the feat more than once, while others hit the top with the tune with which they’d be forever associated. These much loved stars grace this brand new 1 CD collection of 25 original chart toppers from the fabulous fifties.  

Cat. no.: GLMY87

Barcode: 5060088441350

Our musical journey begins with the No. 1 that started it all in the first ever record chart in 1952, Al Martino’s Here In My Heart, and it closes with a sprinkling of chart toppers from 1959 - Bobby Darin’s Dream Lover, Shirley Bassey’s As I Love You and more. In between is pure musical gold - nugget after nugget from an era when stars really were stars and melody was king! Singing sweethearts like Alma Cogan and Rosemary Clooney, larger-than-life heart throbs of the calibre of Frankie Laine and Frankie Vaughan, and charismatic movie stars such as Doris Day and Frank Sinatra. From Frankie Laine’s record-setting I Believe - 18 weeks at the top! - to Tennessee Ernie Ford’s slice-of-life Sixteen Tons, what better way could there be to enjoy these mighty names at the absolute peak of their form?

25 original chart topping recordings from the 1950s, including Cara Mia David Whitfield, Que Sera Sera Doris Day, Don’t Let The Stars Get In Your Eyes Perry Como, Hold My Hand Don Cornell, Hernando’s Hideaway Johnston Brothers, The Finger Of Suspicion Dickie Valentine, She Wears Red Feathers Guy Mitchell, Three Coins In The Fountain Frank Sinatra, Dreamboat Alma Cogan, Garden Of Eden Frankie Vaughan, Rose Marie Slim Whitman, Sixteen Tons  Tennessee Ernie Ford, Lay Down Your Arms Anne Shelton, No Other Love Ronnie Hilton, Carolina Moon Connie Francis, Just Walkin’ In The Rain Johnnie Ray, Side Saddle Russ Conway, and more ...
