5.0 out of 5 stars Great early sixties pop music 30 Mar 2005
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Johnny's roots were in country music but he signed for Cadence records (the label famous for the early Everly Brothers recordings) and recorded some brilliant pop music. His biggest hit, Poetry in motion, made number two in America but did even better in Britain, where it was a number one hit. The B-side (Princess princess) is popular with Johnny's fans and can be found here.
Johnny's subsequent releases made little impact in the UK but he had two more American top ten hits (Without you, It keeps right on a-hurting) and had other notable American hits with Send me the pillow that you dream on (which nearly made the UK top twenty - his biggest UK hit after Poetry in motion), You can never stop me loving you (a UK top ten hit for Kenny Lynch) and I can't help it if I'm still in love with you (a Hank Williams song).
Johnny sometimes wrote his own material and it is worth noting that of his own songs, It keeps right on a-hurting (one of his big American hits) has been covered by Elvis Presley. Johnny also co-wrote Judy Judy Judy, which he sang in the movie Just for fun. Later, Petula Clark recorded a French version of the song titled Oublie oublie oublie.
Johnny had to leave the music business for a while to do duty in the army (just as Elvis had done). When he returned, he signed for a different record label and tried to establish a career as a country singer but met with only limited success. All the tracks that really matter pre-date his spell in the army and can be found in this magnificent compilation.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite original ? 24 Jun 2010
Format:Audio CD
great songs, pretty good record but I am not convinced that some of these are the original recordings.....there are some words on "Poetry in Motion" that do not tally with the original single. I am not nerdy enough to dig out my singles and see what the differences are but I am pretty certain they are there. And to be honest I miss the crackles and hiss of original vinyl. But worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars High school meets country 31 Mar 2008
By Richard
Format:Audio CD
Johnny Tillotson topped the charts in the U K but was bigger in his own country and possibly Ireland where he stands as the most obvious influence on Daniel O'Donnel who even sounds like him.
Why do I love you so -a nice copy of Poor little fool-was typical of his brand of high school-though the follow up to the hit Poetry in Motion was quite a poor song called Jimmy's Girl and did him no favors.
You can never stop me loving you was a cover of the Kenny Lynch original-he met Lynch in England,a singer known in the States for the song Puff up in smoke
