AllMusic Review by

This ten-track budget album includes nine of the 24 songs Chubby Checker charted between 1960 and 1963, among them all but one of the Top Ten hits "The Twist," "Pony Time," "Let's Twist Again," "The Fly," "Slow Twistin'," and "Popeye the Hitchhiker." (The only one missing is "Limbo Rock.") Whatever arrangements might have been made with Parkway Records (though there are no annotations, Checker recorded these songs for Parkway, these are the original recordings, thus the album is considered a bargain.
