Cash Box Regional Hits 1957
Price: $39.95

112 pages | Size: 8.5 x 11 inches | Softcover


It's the second in our new series devoted to an era when the 45 r.p.m. record was king with even more colorful and glossy pages than the 1956 book!

This artist-by-artist anthology uncovers all of the records that only appeared on the local listings (Disc Jockey, Juke Box and Retail Outlets) and did not appear on any national pop singles charts.

Now these rare records have definitive research showing the exact dates and places that they tasted fame. 

An exhaustive investigation of Cash Box magazine's Top 10 hits listings of 1957, city by city, coast to coast, yielded a host of rare rockabilly, doo wop and rock 'n' roll records. On average, 33 new entries each week never appeared on the national Top 100 or Bubbling Under charts of Billboard, Cash Box or Music Vendor magazines.

Below is a sampling of towns, DJs and shops found in this unique book.
