Description

Charming Billy on CD

Ohnny Preston is best remembered for his big 1959/60 hit Running Bear which was also his first recording. He enjoyed subsequent hits like Cradle Of Love and Feel So Good. He is a talented and versatile singer with a broad range, as well as an innate feel for R&B and an equal facility with ballads. His covers of classics, like his very early recording on The Twist, to his sensitive readings of classic ballads like Dream and Danny Boy, hold up well almost forty years later. In 1989, Bear Family released 'Running Bear', a collection of Preston's Mercury recordings remastered from Mono tapes. Now 'Charming Billy' collects many of those sides, as well as others not previously issued or re-issued, remastered from newly recovered Stereo tapes. Included are the title tune and hits like Cradle Of Love, Feel So Good, and Leave My Kitten Alone, as well as other Preston classics like I Want A Rock And Roll Guitar, Do What You Did, and Chief Heartbreak among others.
