Rock-a-Hits  A compilation of 1950’s pop songs by Cadence Records stablemates The Everly Brothers, The Chordettes, Johnny Tillotson and Link Wray (“Rumble”).  This a one in a series that the label put out with great teen covers (e.g., “Rock-a-Ballads”).   The two on the cover here are Justine Carrelli and Bill Cook “two swinging young Philadelphians … well known all over America as two of the best dancers ever to hit Dick Clark’s famous American Bandstand.”
