Bubbling Under, Vol. 2: 32 Tracks That Bubbled Under the Billboard Charts from 1961-196

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
First introduced in 1959, Billboard's Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart listed the top singles that had yet to break into the Top 100, and truth be told, many of these releases, although they well might have deserved to, never did break on to that higher chart. The reasons were varied, but often it was just unlucky cultural timing. Imagine, for instance, being a surf band and putting out a great instrumental single just as the Beatles and the British Invasion groups broke in the U.S. and were beginning to dominate radio air play. Pop music is a roll of the dice. If there's a clear tragedy to the chart system, it's that these below-the-100 singles, many of which were ...

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
First introduced in 1959, Billboard's Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart listed the top singles that had yet to break into the Top 100, and truth be told, many of these releases, although they well might have deserved to, never did break on to that higher chart. The reasons were varied, but often it was just unlucky cultural timing. Imagine, for instance, being a surf band and putting out a great instrumental single just as the Beatles and the British Invasion groups broke in the U.S. and were beginning to dominate radio air play. Pop music is a roll of the dice. If there's a clear tragedy to the chart system, it's that these below-the-100 singles, many of which were very good, would then vanish from air play in the decades to follow as well. Oldies radio stations stuck to the biggest and most obvious hits, and these almost-made-it singles became rarities and lost treasures, all but forgotten. This is the second release in Rare Rockin' Records' series reclaiming these lost little treasures for the digital age, and like the first volume, it's a fun, varied, and wonderful archival jukebox of the '60s, collecting songs that placed between 101 and 135 on the Billboard charts between 1961 and 1967, most of them in mono. There are some recognizable names here, including Gladys Knight & the Pips, the Lettermen, Bobby Rydell, Brenda Lee, Neil Sedaka, Gary "U.S." Bonds, and the Chiffons, and the whole compilation paints a fascinating look at '60s pop from a second-tier perspective, illustrating once again how deep and varied and wide pop music began to flow at the center of that storied decade.
