Product Description

Alan Freed introduced Jo Ann Campbell as "our little blonde bombshell" in his jukebox movie Go Johnny Go, but Campbell had a lot more going for her than just her good looks. Almost alone among female singers of her day, Camp- bell was capable of singing dreamy pop songs one moment and belting out rockers with a set of pipes that rivaled Wanda Jackson's the next. Jo Ann's Gone and ABC recordings have been anthologized, but now, for the first time, ABKCO Music & Records and Real Gone have teamed up to bring you her complete recordings for the Cameo label, where she scored her biggest hit, "(I'm the Girl from) Wolverton Mountain." Included is her 1962 album All the Hits (in stereo save for the aforementioned "Wolverton Mountain"), plus seven mono bonus sides (five singles and two unreleased tracks), carefully assembled by Abkco's Chief Audio Engineer Teri Landi, from the original analog master tapes and notes by Ed Osborne featuring quotes from Jo Ann. And, oh yes, photos - LOTS of photos!

Though Jo Ann Campbell was quoted as saying she knew nothing of country music she would compare nowadays to taday's ears as similar to Dolly Parton
Many of the songs here have adapted lyrics especailly Patches which is almost a different song and Sheila is actually an answer version where she admits to being the subject of the song.

The Blonde Bombshell - Her Cameo recordings 16 Sept. 2013
By Hernando DeSoto - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
My Thanks to Real Gone Music for re-issuing this album by one of my favorites from the late 50's and early 60's on CD. All The Hits by Jo Ann Campbell.

Pretty Jo Ann was very popular in the New York City Market where her records were promoted heavily by Alan Freed. She had local hits with "Wait a Minute" and "Nervous". I remember reading an article in a local magazine at the time which named Jo Ann as the TV viewer's number one favorite girl singer, beating out Connie Francis (No. 2) and Annette (No. 3).

Jo Ann had a style much like Wanda Jackson and, if you liked Wanda or Brenda Lee, you'll love Jo Ann, too.

The little Floridian left Gone Records for ABC Paramount where she hit again with the novelty "Kookie Little Paradise". We didn't know that these were regional hits and that she was not getting the attention she deserved.

Finally, Jo Ann arrived at Cameo-Parkway; at the time C/P was the hottest label in America. She had a hit with "I'm the Girl From Wolverton Mountain" and Cameo issued this LP: ALL THE HITS BY JO ANN CAMPBELL - THE GIRL FROM WOLVERTON MOUNTAIN. The "All the Hits" series was extremely popular and the albums were built around the singer's style. Chubby Checker sang Dance Hits. Bobby Rydell sang M-O-R, etc.

I like Jo Ann's set because it leaned gently toward the country-crossover market. Although Jo Ann admits that she knew nothing of Country Music, the style suits her to a tee. She demonstrates her flexibility with "It Keeps Right On a Hurtin'"; "Send Me the Pillow that You Dream On"; "You Don't Know Me"; Devil Woman"; "Teenage Idol"; "I Remember You"; and a rockin' rendition of "Sheila".

Ironically, although the song Wolverton Mountain was her biggest hit, I never liked it. I liked Jo Ann, not the song . This CD includes several non-charting singles that deserved more attention than they received at the time: "Mr. Fix-It Man"; "Let Me Do It My Way"; a Cameo-Parkway Dance track: "Sloppy Joe" and the rockin' novelty "Mother Please (I'd rather do it myself)".

There are several color photos of pretty Jo Ann included in the well-written informative liner notes.

I'm happy to be told that Jo Ann is doing just fine in retirement. Maybe T.J. Lubinsky can convince her to join one of his revival telecasts and she can rock the house again. Hey, Jo-Ann! We still Love You!

Mother, Please!! 14 Feb. 2014
By J. A. Moriello - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Jo Ann had a lot going for her: a good voice, great back up musicians, and some clever tunes to work with, including Mother Please, I'd Rather Do It Myself. She is also the creator of the answer record to Wolverton Mountain. The songs are happy and up tempo and more than a little bit country. If you like Jo Ann, this set is an all round good choice.
