This Cd contains several great samples of late 50's balladeering beginning with the teen tragedy of "Tell Laura I Love Her". This was Ray's answer to Mark Denning's "Teen Angel". You will also find the original version of Baker Knight's "The Wonder Of You" which Elvis would later take for a wild ride up the charts. I truly believe Peterson's version is superior. Ray dabbles in country music as well on this disc with covers of "Corina,Corina" and "Missing You". They are both good songs but the true Ray Peterson fan will probably buy the disc for "Tell Laura" and "The Wonder Of You". Remember, this is all very dated material (stylistically) yet Ray's plaintiff voice is truly one of a kind and the first two songs are worth the price of the disc. WDB-Dallas, Tx.

Ray Peterson's first album, originally released by RCA back in 1960 and finally remastered onto compact disc from the mastertapes, sounding clear and clean. This was probably Rays best album, the production on these numbers is full and beautifully accompanies Rays effortless vocals. There is not a bad song on here! Ray had big hits in the early 60's with songs like Tell Laura I love her and The Wonder Of You. Also on this CD is the beautiful Goodnight My Love and Answer Me My Love. One of Rays earliest recordings "Fever" also appears. Two bonus tracks in Corrine Corrina and Missing You, these were recorded after Ray had left RCA for Dunes Records in 1960. The style of music is a variation from Rock and Roll, early 60's Pop and Country. Ray born in Texas in 1935 was a man of extraordinary talent. His voice was perfect for this type of material and surpases anyone elses versions. Check out the other new Ray Peterson compilation featuring even more hits and a big fold out booklet.

Ray Peterson is without doubt one of the greatest voices of his era. His brilliant range and vocal delivery were perfect for songs of this genre. Tell Laura i love her is a brilliant song, but it does not stop there, the original wonder of you ( no doubt listened to by Elvis prior to his recording ) and the beautiful goodnight my love or Answer me. Ray's voice is full of emotion and drama. It is a real pleasure to hear him sing in such great soud quaity. Re-mastered and crystal clear. The nice thing about this compilation is the inclusion of many of his post RCA recordings. These were made on his own label "Dunes". He carried on with the great big ballad sound with hits like "I could have loved you so well" produced by Phil Spector., and Give us your blessing, another death song in the style of Tell Laura. I would love someone to re-issue Rays MGM material from 1964 onwards. But for now this is a great collection, and the booklet that comes with it is fantastic, full of rare pictures and information. Great!!!

Ray Peterson as a singer was at least as good as Gene Pitney-who he bore a striking resemblance to vocally-and Roy Orbison.With a musical pedigree which went into the late 50s same as Pitney he would never reach the same heights though luckier than say Vinnie Monte.
He was pure high school and later went into country music thus he had no ambitions to go further.
In the U K Peterson was at least a casualty of the music business when his biggest hit TELL LAURA I LOVE HER was covered by an insipid Welsh singer who even stole Richie Valens name.It was also covered by John Leyton who at least made a good job of it but at one time the Peterson disc was not scheduled to be issued here so came out when the local versions were already in the shops and the charts.
2 years earlier Peterson's high school version of Little Willie John's Fever was the blueprint for Peggy Lee's hit.
While the Laura follow up-CORRINE CORRINA-also charted in the States this was on his own label Dunes which also signed up another high school popper Curtis Lee-another singer who suffered in the U K through lack of airplay.He was of course Peterson's opposite-more Freddy Cannon than Gene Pitney.
For the American market Peterson covered Emile Ford's What do you want to make those eyes at me for-using an identical arrangement.
In 1969 Presley topped the charts with a version of a song which Peterson cut first-The Wonder of you.
The kind of music he specialised in-high school-was music which blatantly copied the top 40 especially the big gun teen idols and Ray was no exception as he and his arrangers copied Roy Orbison to the hilt on I could have loved you so well.
Nothing wrong with copying-it takes as much talent to copy as it does to be original.
