200 titles in a 10-CD box with the most successful hit singles of the years 1956-1962. All these songs, whether A-side or B-sides, reached top positions in the American Billboard charts of these years. The musical ne plus ultra for nostalgic reminders of a time in which pop music broke new ground and the youth finally began to live their own culture. This unique 10-CD box documents a relative rarity: singles, whose A- and B-side were able to chart in the official American Billboard charts. Usually, people only paid attention to the A-side, the hit song - the back of the single was only intended as a “filler”. 100 glorious exceptions are collected in this box. In a way this is a journey back to the legendary music scene of those years in which Rock & Roll had its great successes. The melodies linger on from Elvis Presley, Bill Haley, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, Roy Orbison on to Connie Francis, Brenda Lee and Pat Boone. All of these hits are so well known and loved, they practically invite you to sing along. Several songs went to number 1 on the charts and the rest at least reached the upper regions of the top 100. This box presents the ne plus ultra of the American pop scene with 100 top singles of the 1950s and early 1960s.
