Compilation of some of Johnny Tillotson's hits from 1958 through 1965. Tracks 1, 2,7, 11 and 12 are in mono, the rest in true stereo. The back of the CD states the following:"All tracks are transferred from the original stereo master tapes except: Tracks # 1, 2, 7 which appear in mono because true stereo masters do not exist. Tracks # 11, 12 appear in mono because a true stereo single master could not be located."Besides the infamous Poetry In Motion, hearing the hard to find stereo version of Earth Angel makes this CD worth the money. Good job by Varese Sarabande (the CD label that produced this). Track Listing:(1) Dreamy Eyes (2) True True Happiness (3) Why Do I Love You So (4) Earth Angel (5) Poetry In Motion (6) Jimmy's Girl (7) Without You (8) It Keeps Right On A-Hurtin' (9) Send Me The Pillow You Dream On (10) I Can't Help It (If I'm Still In Love with You) (11) Out Of my Mind (12) You Can Never Stop Me Loving You (13) Funny How Time Slips Away (14) Talk Back Trembling Lips (15) She Understands Me (16) Heartaches By The Number (17) Gidget"

"This is an impressive compilation of Johnny Tillotson's hits. I would have liked to have had "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" on here. It was the flip side of another Hank Williams, Sr. song "I Can't Help It" that Johnny did in the fall of 1962. And "You Can Never Stop Me Loving You", a great teenage angst song from 1963, would have worked better with its otherwise great acoustics if it had been available in stereo; otherwise, this is a pretty complete account of his hits. "Earth Angel"? Not a hit for Johnny; I'll stick with the Penguins on that one."
