Format: Audio CD
Twenty-five tracks from one of the best distributors out there - Varèse-Sarabande - covering one of the better-known R&R instrumental groups of the late 1950s - The Champs - who had but 8 nationally-charting singles, and they leave out one of them and its B-side!! Why? Surely when putting this together those missing sides (Limbo Dance - # 97 Billboard Pop Hot 100 in October 1962 b/w Latin Limbo on Challenge 9162) were considered.

Some will argue that Limbo Dance was a minor entry and did not deserve to be included among their "25 All-Time Greatest Recordings" - but what can't be ignored is that it did get into the Hot 100. Unlike Night Train, Experiment In Terror, Mr. Cool, Switzerland/Only The Young, Kahlua, Bright Lights Big City, and The Man From Durango which were all part of singles - some of them B-sides - that could not crack the Hot 100! They then compound the oversight by omitting the B-sides of two legitimate hits - Subway, the flipside of the August 1958 # 59 Chariot Rock (Challenge 59018) and Twenty Thousand Leagues which backed Jan-Feb 1960 # 30 Too Much Tequila (Challenge 59063).

Dubbed The Champs after Gene Autry's horse Champion (he owned the label), they were also a studio group that underwent many personnel changes. On their first, and biggest, hit Tequila - # 1 Billboard Pop Top 100 for 5 weeks and R&B for 4 weeks in March-May 1958 b/w Train To Nowhere (Challenge 1016), they consisted of rhythm guitarist Dave Burgess, lead guitarist Buddy Bruce, saxophonist Danny Flores (aka Chuck Rio), drummer Gene Alden, and bassist Cliff Hils. By the time of their second hit that summer, El Rancho Rock - # 10 R&B/# 30 Top 100 b/w Midnighter - # 94 Top 100 (Challenge 59007), Dale Norris and Joe Burnas had replaced Bruce and Hils.

Man when I bought this Cd I thought that Tequila was the best song on this Cd. Then I listened to last night, midnighter, the man from durango, and the peter gunn theme and I was really suprised that the tracks are as good as tequila and some even better. I have no favorite tracks on this Cd because I like all the tracks. Ps: If you buy this Cd you won't be dissapointed you'll be supprised and amazed.

Swingin' times are back...and The Champs give it their instantly recognizable style...been a big fan from the very beginning, late '50s into the '60s...what I didn't realize was the versatility this group can bring...for instance, two Henry Mancini tunes..."Our Man In Hollywood" (Mancini) classic "PETER GUNN THEME" and the self-titled "EXPERIMENT IN TERROR", both tremendous hits for the composer...but The Champs serve up a delicious arrangement.
Of course there are the stand outs ~ "TEQUILA", their signature song..."HONKY TONK", the Bill Doggett big hit..."NIGHT TRAIN", all aboard for this classic ride from the past..."LIMBO ROCK" and "MR. COOL", both immortal sounds from these talented musicians...and it lives on!
Great job from ~ Cary E. Mansfield and Steve Massie (collection producers)...sharing a glimpse from the past...as I relive my youth, to those thrilling days of yesterday...when America was emotionally touched by...THE CHAMPS!
