• Danny & The Juniors emerged as a rock ‘n’ roll-influenced doowop group in the mid-50s at their high school in the musical hotbed of Philadelphia, a city which also spawned the likes of Charlie Gracie, Fabian, Frankie Avalon, Bobby Rydell, Freddy Cannon (a guest artist on one track on this collection) and Chubby Checker. They recorded a song called “Do The Bop”, which through the input of American Bandstand producer and presenter Dick Clark became “At The Hop”, which gave them a US chart debut at No. 1 to establish one of the memorable and iconic musical landmarks of the rock ‘n’ roll era in 1957.

• They went on to have several more hits over the next five years before the British Invasion eclipsed their career.

• This 35-track 2-CD set comprises the entirety of the recorded output during this core era of their recording career, featuring as it does all their A and B sides for the ABC-Paramount, Swan, Guyden and UK Top Rank labels during these years – remarkably, they did not release any albums during this time.

• It naturally includes their eight hits from these years, among them their No. 1 “At The Hop” along with another classic “Rock ‘n’ Roll Is Here To Stay”, which was adopted by ‘70s rock ‘n’ roll revival band Sha-Na-Na as part of their repertoire, inspiring the album title “Sha-Na-Na Is Here To Stay”, and they performed it as Johnny Casino & The Gamblers in the 1978 movie version of “Grease”.

• This comprehensive collection captures the essence of a group who made a small but highly significant contribution to the rock ‘n’ roll canon.
Reviews For The Complete Releases 1957-62 (2CD)
Vintage Rock (Issue 40) - John Howard
“This double CD comprises every A- and B-side of their hitmaking career. Oddly, the outfit never cut a standalone LP, label bosses no doubt believing their teen market was nor, at that time, into long players… How wrong.” *****
