The Twist was by far the biggest dance craze at the turn of the '60s, an era during which new dance fads seemed to come along every few weeks. However, although The Twist had taken America by storm during 1960, it took a couple of years to catch on in the UK. This unique collection takes a look at the UK’s reaction to The Twist, presenting an eclectic, unlikely selection of bedfellows, performing mainly cover versions of US Twist hits. More than a third of these tracks have never previously appeared on CD. Featured artists include Duffy Power, Shane Fenton, Billy Fury, The Firestones, The Viscounts, Cliff Richard and the Shadows, Paul Rich, Lord Rockingham's XI, The King Brothers, Dean Shannon and many others.
