More Info:

This great-value 60-track 2-CD set comprises the A & B sides of his US and UK singles during this era. - Along with Frankie Avalon and Freddy Cannon, Bobby Rydell was one of the Philadelphia-born Italian-American teen idol singers to burst onto the scene in the late rock 'n' roll era, taking his place in a distinctive and successful strand of pop with a style that ranged from the out-and-out rock 'n' roll of Wild One to more mainstream hits like Volare and Sway, his active career lasting a decade or more into the new millennium. This great-value 60-track 2-CD set comprises the A & B sides of his US and UK singles during this era, from his 1959 debut on the Veko label and through his Cameo releases to the end of 1962, and including his duets with Chubby Checker, along with all the titles from his albums We Got Love and Bobby Sings, Bobby Swings and selected titles from his Salutes The Great Ones album. It features the 22 of his career 29 Billboard Hot 100 entries which he achieved during these years, including five Top 10 hits, We Got Love, Wild One (his biggest hit at No. 2), Swingin' School, Volare and The Cha-Cha-Cha, and his chart entries with duets with Chubby Checker. It's a thorough overview of the primary era of his chart career and a substantial showcase for his talent not only as a performer who readily wowed a teenage audience but as a versatile song stylist across the pop spectrum.
