Format: Audio CD
Johnny and his brother Dorsey were born and raised in Memphis, where they went to the same school as Elvis Presley and even worked at the same electrical company as Elvis, before any of them became famous. After a spell as a boxer, Johnny eventually tried to join Sun records but was rejected as being too much like Elvis.
With his brother, Johnny established a successful songwriting partnership, writing several of Ricky Nelson's hits. Eventually, Johnny did find a record company with which he had some success and this compilation is proof of that.
Despite the title, Johnny didn't come close to having 25 hits of any size - however, the few hits that he had are all here including the two big ones - Dreaming and You're sixteen, both of which were UK top five hits. Ringo Starr covered You're sixteen in the seventies and returned the song to the UK top five. Johnny's other UK hits were Little boy sad, Girls and Clown shoes. In America, he had a few other hits including Big big world and God country and my baby.
Those five UK hits occupy the first five tracks here. The remainder of the compilation includes a mix of original songs and covers. Among the covers are songs that were hits for Elvis (Girl of my best friend, Crying in the chapel), Conway Twitty (It's only make believe, Mona Lisa) and Bobby Darin (Dream Lover).
Johnny eventually died in a boating accident while on a fishing trip in 1964. Dorsey died of a heart attack in 1979. At least they left a musical legacy that we can enjoy.

I couldn't afford to buy singles as a teenager so this album fills a large gap in my collection. Johnny died far too young and never got the chance to fulfill his full potential. This album is a good example of his finest recordings.

The competition for recognition during the early years of the Rock/Pop revolution
was pretty intense, you needed a supply of great numbers to pursue a successful
chart career.
'Johnny Burnette' had the voice and I guess the looks of a Pop-Star however here
in the U.K his career in terms of Chart entries only spanned from 1960 -1962 he
achieved just Five Top 40 entries, three of which were in fact Top 10 entries those
being 'Dreaming' (peaked at number 5) 'Your Sixteen' (Charted at number 3) and
'Little Boy Sad' (reached number 12) funnily enough my favourite track of his only
reached number 35, 'Clown Shoes' the other Top 40 entry was 'Girls' (a number
37 hit)
'Clown Shoes' proved to be his last Chart success in the UK all five hits over a spell
of just 18 months.
Also included on the album one or two cover-versions including 'Elvis's' 'Girl Of My
Best Friend' and 'Crying in the Chapel' along with his version of the 'Bob Luman'
classic 'Let's Think About Living' also a cover version of the 'James Darren' hit
'Dream Lover'
For me, it's all about the Hits I remember well from way back when.....and the many
cherished memories from that era.,
