Since the late eighties it's been rumored that the Cameo-Parkway recordings, owned by ABKCO, will be issued on CD. Its artist roster includes the likes of Chubby Checker, Charlie Gracie, The Orlons, ? and the Mysterions, Dee Dee Sharp. None of these artists' hits have ever appeared on legit CDs before, except for the occasional odd track licensed for a compilation, such as "Limbo Rock" on the Moonlighting TV soundtrack. It's amazing to think that Chubby Checker's hit recording of "The Twist" has never appeared on a non-bootleg CD. But all this time, they've been just rumors. But the rumors have never flown like they are now. The info is coming in from all over that 2004 is the year. The lastest comes from the head of Collector's Choice Music, Gordon Anderson. In their new catalog, his editoral says he has it from very reliable, highly-placed sources that a Cameo-Parkway boxed set is coming out this year. Now the son of Charlie Gracie, who was their first artist with his 1957 hit "Butterfly," has just written a brief article for the Rockabilly Hall of Fame website, where he reveals that his father has just been interviewed for the liner notes of a boxed set to be released "later this year." It's scheduled to be followed up by individual artist compilations. Very exciting news for oldies fans.
