Editorial Reviews

Two albums from the height of the Chubby Checker twist phenomenon! Chubby just flat-out ruled the charts in 1960 and 1961; the title cut to 'It s Pony Time' went to #1, his only #1 hit besides 'The Twist', while 'Let s Twist Again', his fourth album, went to #11, shortly to be followed by three Top Ten albums in a row.

Format:Audio CD
One might imagine that the passing of Allen B. Klein in 2009 has something to do with the emergence of six Cameo-Parkway CD reissues, including this one and titles from Bobby Rydell, The Orlons, Terry Knight and the Pack, a vocal groups compilation, and a novelty outing from Clint Eastwood's years on Rawhide. The legendary Philadelphia labels operated from 1956 through 1967, hitting a peak during American Bandstand's years as a Philly institution, and becoming the root of Klein's ABKCO Records in 1967. Klein reissued vault material on vinyl in the 1970s, but was very slow to adapt to CDs. Bootlegs and re-recordings proliferated for decades before the embargo was broken with the 2005 box set Cameo Parkway 1957-1967, and a series of best-of discs for the labels' biggest stars. Five years later ABKCO is really starting to dig into the vault with this volley of original full-length album reissues.

Oddly, rather than starting the reissue program with Checker's (and the Parkway label's) first two albums (1960's Twist with Chubby Checker and 1961's For Twisters Only), the series jump-starts with the twister's third and fourth albums. Checker ignited a worldwide dance craze with his chart-topping cover of Hank Ballard's "The Twist," and hit the Top 20 again with a cover of the 1940's dance number, "The Hucklebuck." With his third album, he once again topped the charts with a novelty dance number, "Pony Time." The album also yielded the lower-charting "Dance This Mess Around.
