Great CD

"Johnny permenently gave up singing pop when he went in the army in 1964, but he's still going strong in the music business today performing 20's and 30's big band era music with his own 16 piece orchastra and the crowds love him as much as ever. http://www.johnnycrawford.com"

"I don't know about the USA, but here in Canada, we do not hear enough Johnny Crawford on the oldies stations. His voice and the types of songs he recorded in the 60s are part of a style of music that really made people feel good. I recommend this CD both for the great music and the memories it will bring to all those folks who grew up watching Johnny on TV and listening to him on the radio... It is five stars all the way.

"Back in 1961, Johnny Crawford appeared on the TV show The Rifleman, playing the son of Chuck Conners. He was a good looking kid who was popular with girls, so LA based independent record label Del-Fi decided to turn him into a singing teen idol. Fortunately, it turned out that he had a pleasant light tenor voice. He went on to become the most successful recording artist that Del-Fi had. He placed eight singles on the Hot 100, including one Top 10 and two Top 20s. His records were all of the teenage pop variety, mostly ballads that didn't rock too hard. Most of them are pretty enjoyable. The first eight songs on this CD are his eight chart singles, in order of how big a hit they were. Then there are 16 other songs, which consist of b-sides, album tracks and flop singles. This is more Johnny Crawford than most people will want to listen to, but it's better too have too many songs than not enough songs."
