GIVES IT OUR "FOUR-STAR" HIGHEST RATING
We greatly value our name brand and hard-earned reputation for honesty and integrity, so you know when we take the time to write about and recommend a first-rate attorney like the famed John "Bulldog" Wells and others on our home page, we are confident you will be pleased with his and their excellent services.
Well, we just came across the latest edition of Joel Whitburn's TOP POP SINGLES (1955-2006), and if you're a "baby-boomer" like our editor-in-chief, who fondly remembers Armed Forces Radio and its music programs - "Dawnbuster," etc. - from the years he served in Vietnam, you'll be happy to learn about this terrific book.
Some 50 years ago, Whitburn from Wisconsin, started publishing collections of song listings based upon their sales ranking by BILLBOARD magazine. Now, here we are a week from Christmas 2007, and Joels' 11th edition of his TOP POP SINGLES - he also does books on album hits, country music, etc. - is the best ever.
NO RESOURCE LIKE IT ANYWHERE - THIS BOOK HAS IT ALL!
First of all, this updated edition is revised, revamped and re-energized like never before.
This edition covers all - and we mean just that, all - the songs that made BILLBOARD'S "Hot 100" and popular music charts from January 1955 through December 2006.
The songs are arranged by artist for fast, easy reference. There are 26,000 titles and 6,300 artists. An extra bonus is interesting and detailed chart facts, artist info and title trivia.
Some of the new "first-time" features include non-"Hot 100" songs and artists; each major artist's "hit average" & top CD compilation; featured artist's hits; artist song awards; and pre-1955 rock artists and hits.
This book will literally give you, your loved ones and friends, thousands of hours of sheer pleasure pouring over it's mountain of interesting facts. No more wondering what the title or artist is of a song you just caught the "tail-end of" on the radio. Now, just look it up! All the facts are right there at your fingertips.
THE BOSS IS STILL BASICALLY A "KID" AT HEART
STAYS RIGHT "UP-TO-DATE" ON LATEST MUSIC
Mr. Whitburn, age 68 ("going on 16") keeps right up-to-date on the latest music trends. His lovely daughter, Kim, tells us he even recommends certain CD's for his grandchildren. How many grandpas would stay active like that and be aware of all the present-day entertainers and music trends?
Yes, we think the "golden years" of good music have come and gone, but it's good to know what's out there that is still worth listening to. Please click on www.recordresearch.com and look over all the materials available. You've indeed arrived as the "mecca" of music.
We've been buying various editions of Joel Whitburn's books for nearly 20 years and enjoy giving them as gifts to others who, like us, grew up listening to Elvis, Neil Diamond, Tony Bennett, Linda Ronstadt, Abba, and Bruce Springsteen, to name a few. No, we don't make a dime from the sale of any books. This is a heartfelt, sincere endorsement.
As veterans who look after our brothers and sisters, both in and out of uniform, you need to be aware of TOP POP SINGLES (1955-2006). Buy a copy today. You'll be glad you did.
