Album Review

16 Most Requested Songs is a midline-priced collection that spotlights many of Guy Mitchell's best-known and most popular performances for Columbia Records, including "My Heart Cries for You," "The Roving Kind," "Knee Deep in the Blues," "There's Always Room at the Top," "Chicka-Boom," "My Truly, Truly Fair," "Crazy with Love" and "Singing the Blues." Although it's far from a perfect retrospective of his career, it's still a nice sampler of familiar items, and it may satisfy the needs of some casual fans who only want the hits.

It's interesting to note that, of all of the singers who had pop chart hits in the early 1950s, Mitchell may be the only one to have successfully updated his sound in response to rock ’n' roll. No one will mistake songs like "Rock-a-Billy” and “Heartaches by the Number” with Little Richard or even Bill Haley, but they are rock ’n’ roll, unlike his earliest hits.

It’s amazing how thoroughly the hit parade was transformed in just a few years.

To some listeners, the name Guy Mitchell evokes contempt — as the singer whose pop-styled covers of "Singin' the Blues" and "Knee Deep in the Blues" cut the legs out from under Marty Robbins' country-styled original renditions. To others, Mitchell evokes the last period of America's innocence, the mid-'50s, when he periodically ascended the pop charts in the company of singers like Frankie Laine. Mitchell was all of those things and more, in some ways a trail-blazer — he was the first...
