Description

Many artists have been called the King Of Rock 'n' Roll, but there has only ever been one 'King Of The Twist'. This Jasmine collection brings you all of Chubby's US and UK As and Bs from 1959 to 1962 - his peak years as a chart maker. All performed with the same gusto that made him a household name of the period, and many now considered to be the foundation on which the future Sound Of Philadelphia was built.

South Philadelphia's Ernest Evans twisted his way from plucking chickens for a living to international renown with a dance that he didn't invent, but that is so associated with Evans' stage persona of Chubby Checker that he might as well have done.

In the years between R 'n' R and Merseybeat, Chubby was one of the biggest selling artists on the planet, with a dizzying assortment of Top 10 dance crazes including the Fly, the Pony and the Hucklebuck, always returning to the Twist for his biggest hits. He remains the only artist to have topped the US charts on two occasions with the same record - 'The Twist' - in the space of one year.

Included on this album are Chubby's biggest ever hits plus many tracks that are new to CD - including some rare, early and non-hit singles that have never been reissued before.

This 60th anniversary collection marks the first occasion on which all of Chubby's most important hits have appeared in the same place at the same time. It's been a long time since the Twist was the dance floor sensation of the nation, but you're never too young or too old to go round and round and up and down with Chubby Checker!
