CASINOS BOBBY BE GOOD Of all the Philly guys who hit it big in pop music during the late-1950s and early '60s, it's hard to argue that Bobby Rydell didn't lap the field when it came to all-around talent. Although he became one of the era's biggest teen idols through such lightweight fare as "Swingin' School," "Wild One" and "Wildwood Days," Rydell has always been in a league with Frank Sinatra and Bobby Darin when it came to swinging his way through the pre-rock pop catalog.

Bill Toms For 19 years, Bill Toms played lead guitar for Joe Grushecky and the Houserockers, the underappreciated Pittsburgh band whose muscular rock draws from the same well as that of their pal Bruce Springsteen. You'll hear some of the Boss' influence on Toms' seventh solo studio album. What sets the work apart, though, is the commanding way he charts his own course as a rock-and-soul man. As you'd expect from an album titled Memphis (though it was mostly recorded in West Virginia)
