The Greatest Country Hits of 1958
The Greatest Country Hits of 1958

Various Artists
Styles: Country
Catalogue Number: ACQCD7084

This release heralds something of a re-launch of a series which up until now has comprised 2-CD sets in our ADDCD range featuring selected annual collections of the biggest US country hits of each year.

With the continuing success of our America’s Greatest Hits series, we have decided to fill in the gaps in our Greatest Country Hits range with 4-CD collections which enable us to provide a more in-depth spread across the Billboard Country charts of that year.

This great-value 120-track collection comprises every record that appeared in the various versions of the country charts during 1958 chart along with some B sides that tagged along with the featured hit. Until October 1958, Billboard published a “Most Played C&W in Juke Boxes” Top10, a “C&W Best Sellers In Stores” Top 15 and a “Most Played C&W by Disc Jockeys” Top 15. As of 20th October these were combined into a single “Hot Country and Western Sides” Top 30 chart.

 It features all the major country stars of the era, along with the increasing number of pop and rock ‘n’ roll artists whose hits were crossing over from the pop to the country charts.However, it also includes quite a few relatively obscure tracks which have not been widely available on CD.

With an in-depth 10-000+ word booklet with background notes on every record, it will be an in-demand item for country collectors.
