Acrobat continues its successful series devoted to the biggest chart records of each calendar year in the early chart era. Focussing on 1948, this 103-track set completes the series which has ran from 1940 through to 1962. The 4CD compilation includes just about every record which peaked in the Top 15 of the Billboard Best Sellers chart or in the Top 15 of the Cash Box chart during the year. For reasons of space, it excludes those records were still in the chart at the start of the year, but which peaked in the Top 10 in 1947, and so are included in our existing 1947 collection. It was a big year for solo vocalists, who were starting to dominate as the big swing bands declined in the era of post-war. It includes a 15,000+ word booklet with a commentary on every record.
