The 1955 British Hit Parade Part 1
The 1955 British Hit Parade Part 1

Various Artists
Styles: British Hit Parades
Catalogue Number: ACTRCD9008
The fourth volume in Acrobat?s ongoing series devoted to the British hit parades. In 1955 the chart increased to 20 places which means that it now takes six compact discs to feature all of the years chart entries. We have therefore split volume four into two 3 CD sets. This first 3CD set comprises every record that entered the UK chart from January 8th 1955 to July 16th 1955 in chronological order of entry with the exception of multiple versions of the same song where we have separated the different versions for ease of listening. The rest of the year can be found on ACTRCD 9009.
