Album Review

One of the most agreeable vocalists managed by Columbia A&R head Mitch Miller, Guy Mitchell sold more than 40 million records during the '50s. His full-throated approach to singing worked well for the purposes of Columbia and Miller, whether the song was a sentimental standard or a buoyant, handclapping novelty hit with accompaniment by the Mitch Miller Chorus (which occasionally took a larger role on Mitchell's sides than Mitchell himself).

Very few listeners will want an entire disc of Guy Mitchell, but for those who do, this is the one to buy.
