The Best Of

Artist: Johnnie Ray
Format: 2CD
Bar-code: 5060255183014
Cat No: DAY2CD301


Johnnie Ray is too often overlooked in appreciations of the rock & roll era, but his admirers run the full gamut: from Elvis Presley to Morrissey, and back again via Kevin Rowland and Bob Dylan. For his many admirers, Ray was the missing link between Frank Sinatra and Elvis, generating an incredible amount of energy and vulnerability in performance. At the time of his greatest success, with the songs captured on these discs, he was the biggest, most charismatic pop star on the planet.
