"What fascinated me about Ray Peterson in the 1960s was that he had polio, taught himself to sing, and had a range of 3 and a half octaves. I owned the vinyl LP album of this name and probably wore out some of the cuts: not only Tell Laura I Love Her and The Wonder of You, but also Fever, Answer Me My Love, and Goodnight My Love. The original album had Ray's RCA songs, before he moved to Dune. Now the CD includes not only the 12 RCA songs, but also the Dune hits Corrina Corrina and Missing You. A great replacement for what I had before.The only thing missing are the other Dune songs, such as Sweet Little Kathy, I Could Have Loved You So Well, and You Thrill Me. This last one is actually good for a laugh. Hope to be able to acquire them on CD someday."
One of the greats!

"I first heard Ray Peterson when I was a thirteen... first saw him live at the Sacramento Memorial Auditorium in 1961... met him two years later... and became good friends, inaugerating the Ray Peterson Humanitarian Award... then I moved to Australia and we lost contact...Today I am still amazed at how little appreciated this wonderfully versatile singer is. He is certainly one of the most dynamic live performers I've ever seen, and I've seen quite a few. With a four and a half octave vocal range, and a way round a lyric that few rock performers of the late 50s and early 60s ever commanded, Ray Peterson's is one of the classic voices of pre-British Invasion American pop. A great, virtuoso performer, his renditions of songs like Fever, Tell Laura I Love Her, What Did You Wanna Make Those Eyes At Me For? and Answer Me, place him very near the pinnacle of the best in his field. This album attests to that.Ray, if you're reading this, PLEASE contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for the memories... and for the rest of you, BUY this album!!! and discover a singer who will astound...BM"

"RAY PETERSON MAKES ME REMINISCE ABOUT MY TEEN YEARS. I USED TO LISTEN TO HIM ON "WHERE THE ACTION IS" AND "SHINDIG." PETERSON HAS A UNIQUELY MELLOW VOICE AND YET HAS A TREMENDOUS VOCAL RANGE. I PARTICULARLY LIKE HIS RENDITION OF "THE WONDER OF YOU." I THINK IT IS FAR SUPERIOR TO "THE KING'S(ELVIS) RENDITION."
