Product Description:

One Day's double-disc compilation American Heartbeat 1962 captures 50 big hits from a year that's not often thought of as one of the great years in rock & roll music. This proves that's not entirely true. There's terrific R&B from Chris Kenner, symphonic pop from Roy Orbison, country crossovers from Leroy Van Dyke and Jimmy Dean, drama from Del Shannon, and some great doo wop. There's also some sticky middle-of-the-road pop -- Lawrence Welk's "Calcutta," for instance -- but its presence here creates the context of 1961, proving that the rock & roll revolution hadn't completely succeeded. It's not great music, to be sure, but it's part of the reason this comp is fun. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
