One of my most-played LP’s of the mid-80’s, this Swedish LP (issued in 1983 on Skyline Records, a label that also had superb Johnny Carroll and Narvel Felts albums) compiled a number of rare Johnny Burnette sides (including songwriting demos) into one all-killer, no-filler collection, spanning 1956-60 (Johnny passed away in a boating accident in 1964) and showing Burnette’s unique talent as a songwriter and singer as well as the various eclectic styles in which he could work. I’d assume all or most of this eventually came out on the Bear Family box (which I’ve never been able to afford), but for now, settle back and enjoy a well-programmed selection of rarities from the master, JOHNNY BURNETTE.
