Chubby Checker: It’s Pony Time/Let’s Twist Again. CD

Two albums from the height of the Chubby Checker twist phenomenon! Chubby just flat-out ruled the charts in 1960 and 1961; the title cut to It’s Pony Time went to #1, his only #1 hit besides The Twist, while Let’s Twist Again, his fourth album, went to #11, shortly to be followed by three Top Ten albums in a row. Jim Ritz’s liner notes document the Chubby Checker phenomenon; the two albums appear here straight from the original tapes in radio-ready,  primed-to-party mono, just like they were originally released. Another “twist” in the Real Gone Music/ABKCO Music & Records partnership!
