Discogs hasn't let me add releases for years for whatever reason, but for anyone who stumbles upon this page and wishes to add something to it, there's a compilation on this label that says '16 Top Hits' on the front, 'Today's Top Hits Vol. 10' on the rear, and Todays [sic] 16 Top Hits on the label. Catalogue number is 742-AS-16-7-60-A on side one and 742-AS-16-7-60-B on side two; the record plays back at 33 1/3, and its program is as follows:

A1 Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikin
A2 Josephine
A3 Trouble In Paradise
A4 When Will I Be Loved
A5 Tell Laura I Love Her
A6 I'm Gettin' Better
A7 Please Help Me, I'm Falling
A8 Only The Lonely
B1 Because They're Young
B2 Mule Skinner Blues
B3 Love You So
B4 Alley-Oop
B5 I'm Sorry
B6 That's All You Gotta do
B7 Everybody's Somebody's Rock
B8 My Home Town

No year appears anywhere on the release, but research shows me a 16 Top Hits/Today's Top Hits Vol. 8 was allegedly released in 1961, so logically sometime shortly after that.
