Chubby Checker is one of the forgotten early rock & roll pioneers. Although most of the dances his records promoted – “The Pony”, “The Fly”, and “The Hucklebuck”, to mention just three – have long since faded into obscurity, his most famous hit, “The Twist”, remains the yardstick against which all subsequent dance-floor phenomena are measured. This quintessential edition contains two of Checker’s finest LPs: his celebrated debut, Twist with Chubby Checker, and For Twisters Only. Both albums were released by the Parkway label in 1960, and have been remastered and packaged together in this very special collector’s edition, which also includes 7 bonus tracks from the same period. Naturally, “The Twist” has been included here, as have most of the singer’s follow-up smashes (“Let’s Twist Again”, “Twist Train”, etc.), and a host of other dance-craze songs from the golden age of rock & roll.
