Biography

Biographyby John Bush

Though his influence proved less durable than his record sales, Frankie Laine was one of the most popular vocalists of the 1950s, swinging jazz standards as well as half a dozen Western movie themes of the time with his manly baritone. Laine's somewhat artificial Western nature proved more successful in far-off England, where he set two chart records in 1953: ... Read more in Amazon's Frankie Laine Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Great compilation of Frankie's music 3 April 2009
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This British set is compiled from Frankie's recordings that are now owned by Sony, beginning in 1951. All the songs that charted in Britain are here except for a few minor hits, as well as re-recordings of some of his earlier Mercury hits. It is worth pointing out that Frankie often re-recorded his old hits to take advantage of technology that was improving rapidly in the fifties, and I'm not sure if all the later hits are original recordings. The original release dates given in the track listing are sometimes several years later than the date that the song hit the charts. People who must have the original recordings may decide not to buy this set on that basis, but those people will have to check any Frankie Laine compilation carefully.

Record sales charts only started in Britain in November 1952, before which there were only sheet music charts; however, Frankie's American chart success began in 1947. Among his early American hits (on Mercury) represented here by re-recordings are That's my desire, Mam'selle, Shine, That lucky old sun, Mule train and The cry of the wild goose. The last three of these all made number one in the American charts. Frankie had plenty of lesser American hits on Mercury, so dedicated fans will want a compilation of his Mercury recordings to get those hits as well as the original recordings of the ones featured here via re-recordings.

Frankie switched labels in 1951 and his records were then released on Columbia in America, but on Philips in Britain. His early American hits for his new label included Jezebel, Rose Rose I love you, The girl in the wood (a belated UK hit in 1953, having been an American hit in 1951), Jealousy, The gandy dancer's ball and When you're in love, all featured here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Musical treat 22 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Anyone who enjoys Western music will enjoy this compilation by Frankie Laine - my special favourites are "Moonlight Gambler" and "Riders in the Sky" but listeners of a certain age will recall most, if not all, of the tracks, both Western and contemporary. A great listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than a cowboy legend 14 Mar 2011
By Steve
Format:Audio CD
Singers come and go - Frankie Laine is eternal and nobody can equal him in the passion and interpretation of Cowboy ballads. Of course Hank Williams is the 'founder' of Country/Cowboy music with Johnny Cash/Glen Campbell able to belt out a few great songs but close your eyes and Frankie will take you to Tombstone, The Wild West, the gunfight at the OK Corral and the street of High Noon where Gary Cooper meets his enemies.

Frankie was and is forever a great great singer - just wish he was around today as he'd still be a super star. Thank you Frankie = legend is a word that comfortably sits against your name

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb compilation 29 Jun 2014
By Musicfan TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
3 CDs containing the very best of Frankie Laine's original recordings. The first CD is mainly 'western' songs and very good they are too. The other CDs contain such hits as Jezabel, Granada, Rose Rose I love you etc etc. High quality sound. Great material. I can't think you can get a better collection for this iconic artist. A superb compilation. Hilly recommended.

A limited audience I suspect but in his day one of the best around. A bargain price for a bargain collection of nostalgia.
