Back in the late 50s/early 60s, many R&R/Pop records were notoriously short on playing time, often clocking in at two minutes or less. Indeed, the shortest U. S. #1 record was 'Stay', by Maurice Williams & The Zodiacs (in 1960), at one minute thirty-seven seconds. These compilations, inspired by a suggestion from deejay Bernie "Rock'n'Roll Heaven" Keith, each feature three-and-a-half dozen "Sub-Two Minute Wonders"; i. e. forty-two killer tracks which get the business done in two minutes or less. You've got a bit of everything here; hits, misses, some that got away, B-sides, odd EP and/or LP tracks - and I'll wager that nobody realised some of these were "quickies", until now! Featured artists include Elvis, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ray Charles, Del Shannon, Fats Domino, Ray Charles, the Everlys, Bobby Darin, Duane Eddy, Ricky Nelson, The Coasters, Jack Scott, and many more.
