Earl Solomon Burroughs - aka Jack Hammer - was one of America's most enduring and versatile talents. A multilingual singer, songwriter, poet, pianist, dancer, actor, comedian, impressionist, playwright and artist, he enjoyed success across all these fields in a long, rewarding life/career. Although remembered rather more for songwriting ('Great Balls Of Fire', 'Peek-A-Boo') than singing, Jack also, nonetheless, enjoyed success as a mainstream Pop star in Europe during the early 60s, as "The Twistin' King"!This compilation presents the Very Best of his record releases between 1958-1962, including a trio of sides from his 1960 jazzy 'concept album', "Rebellion", which is nowadays a huge collectors' item. Also included are his European Twistin' successes, most notably his biggest sellers, 'The Kissin' Twist', 'Twist Talk', 'The Wiggle' and, of course, our title track.
