    In the early 1950s, Johnnie Ray was arguably the biggest pop star in the world, one who represented the transition between the Crooners of the Big Band era, and the Rock ‘n’ Roll craze that was yet to emerge. This collection celebrates a unique and brave performer whose emotion-filled and histrionicstage performances earned him several nicknames throughout his career, notably ‘The Nabob Of Sob’ and ‘The Prince Of Wails’.
