Ballads of Pat Boone on CD

31 essential tracks, recorded during Pat's golden era, 1955 to 1962. Includes seven million-selling singles: I'll Be Home (UK #1), I Almost Lost My Mind (US #1), Friendly Persuasion/Chains Of Love, Love Letters In The Sand (US #1), April Love (US #1), It's Too Soon To Know and Sugar Moon. Also features memorable B-sides like There's A Moon Out Tonight, Pictures In The Fire and The Locket, as well as fabulous LP tracks like Wait For Me Mary, Unchained Melody, He'll Have To Go, My Queen In Calico and Tennessee Waltz. The lavish, 40-page booklet comprises in-depth liner notes, rare photos and a detailed discography. Perhaps the most remarkable statistic of Pat Boone's career is that he was the biggest charting artist of the 1950s, with 39 US Top 100 entries, one more than Elvis (indeed Pat still holds the 'Billboard' record for spending 220 consecutive weeks on the US charts). Although he later became identified with big ballads and movies themes, Pat first exploded onto the US charts in March 1955 - a full year before Elvis - as a straightforward Rock 'n' Roller. His early releases were covers of up-tempo R&B hits. However, it wasn't long before his record company, Dot, realized that there were plenty of R&B ballads that Pat could cover, and those were better suited to his warm, rich baritone. This one-of-a-kind compilation presents 31 of Pat's memorable ballads, from the most commercially successful phase of his extraordinary, sixty-year recording career. It features three US #1s and a further dozen US hits, including his self-penned, original landmark recording of Exodus (This Land Is Mine), plus a carefully-chosen selection of B-sides, LP tracks, and other rarities. The Ballads Of Pat Boone' is in digipac format and will feature all the usual high standard Bear Family trademarks; a 40-page booklet with abundant photographs, biographical information and full discographical and session details of the featured tracks.
