 -
I am thrilled to introduce one of the most nostalgic and entertaining books we've ever published. Every singles review published in Billboard magazine in 1958 appears within these pages. Nearly 10,000 reviews of record sides by 3,465 artists are photographed at 75% of their actual size. These photographs preserve the original type style (see the Spotlight Winners graphic) of the review pages.
The wording of these reviews brings to life the atmosphere of 1958, an exciting time in Rock 'n Roll history. This was a prime year for Buddy Holly, Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Duane Eddy, Ricky Nelson, The Everly Brothers and a host of other now-legendary rockers. Also within these pages are the early recordings of future stars like The Shirelles, Kenny Rogers, The Isley Brothers, Johnny Rivers and more. Musicologists, journalists and collectors will delight in the reviews of releases by R&B and Country artists, Rockabilly stars, TV and film celebrities, rarities valued up to $1500, sound-alike artists and songs, and the records based on the year's headlines and hottest fads. An added bonus are the original full-page ads of superstar artists and the smaller ads of newcomers that provide a colorful look at the music industry of the late '50s.
So, dig into these wonderful reviews and discover many artists and songs that you may be reading about for the first time. Rediscover the original excitement of reviews on your favorite artists and tunes. Also, see how the Billboard staff accurately picked the hits, missed on others, spotlighted the new artists who never dented the charts and the newcomers who became overnight sensations.
In addition to and outside of the dedicated Record Research staff, I would like to extend a special note of thanks to the following individuals and organizations:
John Montague, afellow music and sports fan, who entered all of the reviewed artists and titles into a data base.Rocky Kruegel, record dealer extraordinaire, who priced the many rare discs in this book.
Bob Rolontz, one of the original music reviewers at Billboard, who brought us back into the listening room with his insightful memoir.
And, of course, many thanks to Billboard magazine for their years of record reviews and for allowing me to give them a second life.
Joel Whitburn

Joel Whitburn

From pastime to passion to profitable enterprise, the growth of Record Research has been the outgrowth of Joel Whitburn’s hobby. Joel began collecting records as a teenager in the 1950s. As his collection grew, he began to sort, categorize and file each record according to the highest position it reached on Billboard magazine's charts. He went on to publish this information — first on individual artists’ cards, then in book form in 1970 — and a business was born.

Today, Joel leads a team of researchers who delve into all of Billboard’s music charts to an unmatched degree of depth and detail. Widely recognized as the most authoritative historian on charted music, Joel has also collaborated with Warner/Rhino Records in creating a series of 150 CD albums, plus five CD albums with Curb Records. Joel’s own record collection remains unrivaled the world over and includes every charted Hot 100 and pop single (back to 1936), every charted pop album (back to 1945), collections of nearly every charted Country, R&B, Bubbling Under The Hot 100 and Adult Contemporaryrecords. Ever the consummate collector, Joel also owns one of the world’s largest picture sleeve collections, many of which he displays in the series of books (Top 40 Hits, Top 40 Albums, Top 40 Country Hits, Top 40 R&B Hits) he writes for Billboard’s book division. To date, Record Research has published nearly 200 books, over 50 of which are currently in the catalog.

Joel's site, www.recordresearch.com, brought his enormous database online in 2009. The MusicVault, complete with chart data and record photos, has proved to be an immediate, reliable wellspring of data
