Once the world´s biggest singing star, Johnnie Ray´s controversial style virtually opened the door for rock and roll and influenced an entire generation of singers.

Johnnie conquered the nation with his emotional multi-million seller lament ´´Cry.´´ His fame encompassed not only bobbysoxers but the likes of Hank Williams Sr., Jackie Gleason and Queen Elizabeth II.

5-CD Box (LP-Format) mit 72-seitigem gebundenem Buch, 124 Einzeltitel, Spieldauer 329:01 Minuten. Nachdem Johnnie Ray Anfang der Fünfziger Jahre einen beispiellosen und unerwartenen Erfolg erfuhr, liess dieser Ende des Jahrzehnts nach. Der nachlassende Erfolg war bedingt durch eine Reihe von persönlichen Problemen. Trotzdem machte er ausgezeichnete Aufnahmen, die hier von 1957 bis Ende der Sechziger dokumentiert werden. Er nahm einige Alben auf, seit langem gestrichen, die als innovativer Pop und Meilensteine gelten. Diese enthalten ´Til Morning´, ´Mr. Cry´ und eine LP, die nur in England erschienen ist, ´A Sinner Am I´. Die Hits aus dieser Periode Yes Tonight Josephine, Build Your Love On A Strong Foundation und I´ll Never Fall In Love Again sind hier alle enthalten. In Ergänzung zu seinen Columbia-Titeln enthält diese Box seine Aufnahmen für Cadence, United Artists, Liberty, Decca, Groove, Reprise und Pye, sowie ein 72 seitiges, gebundenes Buch vom Johnnie Ray Biographen, Jonny Whiteside , das Leben und den Niedergang des Sänger verfolgt. Die Vielseitigkeit seiner Stimme hat nie die Anerkennung bekommen, die sie verdient hätte. Er war, wie Tony Bennett und andere immer wieder erwähnen, der fehlende Baustein zwischen Frank Sinatra und Elvis Presley . Populäre Musik hätte sich ohne ihn mit Sicherheit anders entwickelt.
