Product Description:

Liner Note Author: Jerry Hopkins.
An instantly recognizable bargain bin staple since the late '70s, thanks to their colorful comic book covers tracing the romantic life of an Everycouple named Peg and Eddie, the Cruisin' series of discs are built on a brilliant concept: each disc is devoted to a single year, with hit songs, local commercials, station jingles, and news headlines all presided over by a noted DJ from the era for a near-perfect re-creation of that year's AM radio experience. Cruisin' 1956 is hosted by Robin Seymour of WKMH in Dearborn, MI, whose cheerful, hail-fellow-well-met announcing style is representative of his era. (His custom show-opening theme, performed by Toronto vocal quartet the Four Lads, is a nice touch.) Although there are a few rockers, most notably classics by Chuck Berry, Little Richard, and Carl Perkins (not to mention Roy Orbison's Norman Petty-produced debut, "Ooby Dooby"), most of Cruisin' 1956 focuses on classic R&B and doo wop ballads. The Teen Queens' "Eddie My Love," the Mello Kings' "Tonite Tonite," the Dells' "Oh What a Night," and career-defining hits by the Platters and the Five Satins all make their appearances, with the Cadets' magnificent "Stranded in the Jungle" providing the comic relief. The extras include commercials for the Detroit Times, Merchants Green Stamps and Faygo root beer, as well as another Four Lads appearance, singing a Ford commercial to the tune of their hit "Standing on the Corner," several WKMH station jingles, and sports headlines. ~ Stewart Mason
