Description by OLDIES.com:
This collection brings together some extremely rare and long-forgotten songs about what telephones meant to teenagers. Some of these artists, like Paul Anka, Brenda Lee and Chuck Berry, remain well-known today, nearly 70 years after they made these records. Others, like Lew Williams, Johnny Fallin and Bill Woods, have faded into near-total obscurity.
- Contains 28 telephone-themed early rock & roll and teen pop records including rare and previously unissued tracks.
- Appeals to historians of popular culture as well as collectors of 50s music looking for something a little bit different.
- Contains the barely issued ‘answer record’ to the Big Bopper’s mega-hit Chantilly Lace, as well as the fascinating backstory behind how this record was withdrawn following the Bopper’s untimely death.
- Includes rare photos and detailed track notes by music historians Hank Davis and Roy Forbes.
