CD Reviews

This album is a re-recording of Chubby's hits. elm | USA - Oklahoma | 02/23/1999
(2 out of 5 stars)

"If you're a true-blue fan of Chubby Checker, as I am, this will only mildly interest you. The musical arrangements are loose (the producer should be horse-whipped!). Chubby's fan club president just informed me that he has heard from the owner of Chubby's former record company, Cameo-Parkway Records (that would be the infamous Allen B. Klein of ABKCO Records, NYC) who has been swearing that he is preparing a huge compilation of "Greatest Hits" packages of all the original Cameo-Parkway hits, including Chubby's original hits. So far, nothing has been forthcoming for the two years since he made that comment!"

"Here's another release in Madacy's "21 Winners" series.This one offers 20 hits by Chubby Checker. ("The Twist" is
repeated at the end in a longer form as track no. 21 in order
to quality the CD for inclusion in the "21" series.)They are stereo re-recordings which sound like the ones that
he made for K-tel back in the late 70s. Since many of his early hits were only recorded in monaural,
it's refreshing to hear them now in stereo. The sound is
quite good, and Chubby sings with much enthusiasm. I get the
impression that he was having a good time in the studio.Whereas other reissue labels have licensed 10 or 12 tracks
for release, Madacy gives us all the hits for this collection.A worthwhile purchase."
