Joes Whitburn Presents: Joel Whitburn Presents - Cash Box - Regional Hits 1957

AUTHOR'S NOTE
The treasure hunt continues into 1957! I had so much fun digging though the 1956 Cash Box regional record charts, finding so many long lost buried nuggets of musical gold that I just had to keep up the hunt. To my surprise and delight, starting in early 1957, Cash Box expanded its regional disc jockey coverage from two to three pages! This meant an extra 21 weekly disc jockey Top 10 charts from large, medium and small radio markets across the USA and even a handful from Canada.

1957 was a pivotal year in the expansion of Top 40 radio and the new musical sensation of rock and roll. As the year began, the calypso craze (spearheaded by such artists as Harry Belafonte) was in full bloom. For a few months, the island sound was the hottest thing around. Also in 1957, seemingly every record label was searching for the next Elvis Presley.

As a result, just about any singer with a guitar was given a chance to show their stuff. Many of these rockabilly artists recorded some of the most infectious guitar-based rockers of all-time, many of which are still highly coveted by record collectors to this day (and inspired the vintage photo of me). 1957 also saw the growing popularity of doo-wop vocal groups. Often consisting of young working-class whites and blacks alike, these groups went from the local street corners to the recording studios and some hit it big.

As my work on this book reached its conclusion, I compiled the notes below on some interesting things that caught my attention and made 1957 one of my all-time favorite years for music.

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
