Albenrezension

Although the Rip Chords are remembered as something of a one-hit wonder for their early 1964 Top Five hot rod smash "Hey Little Cobra," they did actually record a fair amount of material in the mid-'60s, with four other singles reaching various lower regions of the charts. This well-done, 20-track compilation has all five of those hits, as well as assorted obscurities from their 45s and LPs, topped off by three previously unissued cuts.
