JAN & DEAN - aka Jan Berry and Dean Torrence - would famously become mainstays of the 1960s U. S. West Coast Surfing/Dragster music scene, alongside The Beach Boys. But long before then, they'd been cutting Doo Wop hits since 1958, their first three 45rpm releases credited to JAN & ARNIE (i. e. Berry and Arnie Ginsberg), while Torrence was away in the U. S. Army. As Jan &?Arnie they registered with the million-selling 'Jennie Lee' and 'Gas Money', and as Jan & Dean with sides like 'Baby Talk', 'There's A Girl', 'Clementine', 'We Go Together', 'Gee', 'Heart?And Soul', 'Wanted, One Girl', 'A Sunday Kind Of Love', 'Tennessee', 'Linda', etc. This compilation presents the very best of Jan & Arnie/Jan &?Dean between 1958-62, recorded across five different record labels, and features a dozen U. S. chart entries, the first time that this body of work has been comprehensively compiled. Included are a couple of collectors' rarities which are notoriously difficult to find elsewhere on CD.
