America's Greatest Hits 1955 (Expanded Edition)

Various Artists
Styles: America's Greatest Hits, Pop
Catalogue Number: ACQCD7087

We continue our highly popular and successful America’s Greatest Hits series as we work back through the 1950s, this time with an expanded 4-CD set edition to sit alongside the existing single CD 1955 edition (ACRCD222) originally released in 2006 before we introduced the 4-CD format in recent years. This great-value 109-track collection comprises every record that peaked in the Top 15 of the Billboard Best Sellers In Stores Chart or the Cash Box Chart, and any other records which peaked in the Top 10 of any of the Billboard Component Charts (Most Played In Juke Boxes, Most Played By Jockeys, or the Honor Roll of Hits). It omits certain records which peaked in 1956 and which have already appeared in our America’s Greatest Hits 1956 collection. As with all these collections it features all the biggest hits of the year, but also includes a number of lesser known records which are not heard very often and which have not been readily available on CD. As always, it includes a substantial 12,000-word booklet with a commentary on every track., and it’s a must for collectors of our completist chart-based anthologies.
