From the mid-'50s to the early '60s, The Chordettes struck a major chord with the record buying public - this female vocal group had 15 hits during those years. Their sweet harmonies were best displayed on the tune which stayed at the top of the charts for seven weeks in 1954, "Mr. Sandman", which is included here.
