20th Century Records (first known as 20th Fox)was sort of a poor man’s Columbia – releasing many obscure pop singers – few of which managed to to chart. The label was owned by the motion picture company of the same name. The label’s two primary mainstays were Diane Renay who managed two hits for 20th (“Navy Blue” and “Kiss Me Sailor”) in the Hot 100 and two “bubbling under” with “Growin’ Up Too Fast” (#124) and “It’s In Your Hands” (#101). The other big act was The Harry Simeone Chorale who released “The Little Drummer Boy” which first charted for 20th Century in 1958 peaking at #15. The song would chart again for the next f our successive years entering the Top 20 each time.
