Survey Shows Elvis
Leading in Sales

Sinatra, Como Lead Veterans
As Newcomers Forge to Front
By Jack Cullen
Vancouver Sun: Sept. 20, 1957

     The latest musical survey taken by Broadcast Music of New York has come up with some interesting facts.
   They have listed the hottest artists during the first eight months of 1957 as Presley, Belafonte, Boone, Domino, The Platters, Guy Mitchell and Andy Williams in just that order.
   Of the veterans in the business only Frank Sinatra, Perry Como and King Cole appeared with a flock of new names hitting the charts with regularity.  In the latter category were such artists as Jim Lowe, The Terriers, Buddy Knox, Mickey and Sylvia, Charlie Gracie and Eddie Cochran.
   Rock and roll more than held its own against calypso, ballads and rockabilly in that order of popularity.  The list also shows the labels with the greatest number of hits.  Victor led the field, followed by the newcomer "Dot," then Columbia, Capitol, Mercury, Imperial, Atlantic and the old timer Decca at the bottom of the heap.
   The bulk of the hits by Presley and Belafonte both recording for Victor.  The smaller independent record labels delivered a host of hits.  If the present trend continues more small labels can be expected to sprout wings and try for the pot of gold.

RED'S RECORD RACK

You Can't Bury
Big-Beat Music

By RED ROBINSON
Vancouver Sun: Sept. 20, 1957
  
   This music business sets itself into many departments and many trends.
   The current trend is towards a slower type of music--ballads and Hawaiian-flavored songs.  This trend is growing more popular every day.
   But one should not think that Rock 'n Roll has had it because the trend at present is toward slower music.
   Rock 'n Roll is not a passing trend anymore than Swing or Boogie was.  This type of music is strong today.
   Rock 'n Roll otherwise know as the Big Beat, is an established type of music that's here to stay.
   You can't bury Rock 'n Roll any more than you can bury the coming generation.  It's a type of music born in North American from North Americans for North Americans.

Pat Boone Marks
Fourth Anniversary

By Red Robinson
Vancouver Sun: Sept. 20, 1957
   Charles Eugene Boone, known as Pat Boone, the great-great-grandson of Daniel Boone, marks his fourth year in the music business with a brand new 12-inch LP called Pat's Great Hits.
   This album contains his hits for 1957.  Pat has had over 17 hit songs since his first releases on Dot Records.  Ain't That a Shame, backed with Tennessee Saturday Nite and Tra La La.
   Pat is now 24 years old, a married pre-med student with three children.  This boy is responsible for the success of one of today's prominent record company's brands, Dot Records.
   Randy Wood told me when I was in Los Angeles that Pat is the boy responsible.
   Pat has a new picture coming out next month.  The show was being filmed when I was in Los Angeles.  The Show is called April Love and should be released to the theatres in November.
   Good luck to Pat Boone, today's great crooner.
   By the way, just for the record, Pat Boone has three songs on today's top 30:  Gold Mine in the Sky, Remember You're Mine and Love Letters in the Sand.
