2010 collection from the instrumental Rock combo. Features the rare album Wide World Hits, which was released under the name the String-A-Longs. When Wide World Hits was issued by Atco in 1968, buyers could hardly have been aware that they were actually purchasing an instrumental LP by The Fireballs. The band were simply masquerading under the name of the String-A-Longs at Norman Petty's behest. 30 tracks. Ace Deluxe.
