Genre: Rock

Johnny Tillotson was one of the teen idols to come to fore in pop in the aftermath of the rock 'n' roll explosion, appealing to a broad audience, and in his case, making an early crossover into the country market, with his rise to fame crystallised around his landmark 1960 Us No. 2 and UK No. 1 "Poetry In Motion". He began his singing career in his teens, performing on local TV shows in his home state of Florida, and winning talent contests which took him to Nashville where he was spotted by talent scouts leading to deal with the Cadence label in 1958 as he turned 20. His first four singles all achieved minor chart placings but it was the classic "Poetry In Motion" which kick-started his career in a big way, leading to further memorable Top 10 successes like "Without You" and his first venture into country-flavoured material, his own song "It Keeps Right On A-Hurtin'". This 2-CD set comprises all the A and B sides of his singles from his debut through to the end of 1962, as well as all the tracks from his first two albums "Johnny Tillotson's Best" & "It Keeps Right on A-Hurtin'", and titles from the Cadence compilation albums "Rock-a-Ballads" & "Rock-a-Hits", which were not otherwise released on his singles or albums. It naturally includes all his fourteen US chart entries from this era. It's a comprehensive overview of the first five years of his recording career, during which time he established the basis from which he became a successful pop/country crossover artist during subsequent decades, and it's a enjoyable showcase for his distinctive vocal talents
