RCA have put together an excellent collection here, covering the years 1958-66, during which time Floyd Cramer notched up a good few solo hits.

Emerging from the strictly Country environment of the Louisiana Hayride, Cramer arrived in Nashville in 1955 and soon made his name as a versatile session musician. He got the piano spot behind Elvis Presley on "Heartbreak Hotel" (1956) and was on his way. He was signed to RCA in 1958 by the great guitarist/producer Chet Atkins, under whose astute guidance he developed a highly individual style.

His first solo single was "Flip, Flop And Bop" which has a rock'n'roll tinge and bears more than a passing resemblance to the Ventures' "No Trespassing" - I wonder who was copying who?

The RCA studios at the start of the 60's became a fertile ground for the "crossover" sounds of Country/Pop, and Cramer, along with Atkins and vocalist/arranger Anita Kerr, was a central figure. He came up with the wistful "Last Date" (1960) which was inspired by his part on Hank Locklin's "Please Help Me, I'm Falling". His catchy composition "On The Rebound" again scored heavily, Anita Kerr's singers providing their trademark background.

Tours followed, notably in 1962 to South Africa with Atkins and Jim Reeves.

The British Invasion came along in 1963, and four young upstarts from Liverpool changed the complexion of the singles charts forever. The Nashville Sound, however, plodded on valiantly, and as time went on Floyd Cramer,like Chet Atkins, found his niche as a seller of versatile instrumental albums.

The standard Pop and Country tunes covered by Cramer on this CD give a good insight into that direction, but RCA have wisely given credit to his original efforts, resulting in a well-balanced 20 tracks.

A great retrospective for those who remember the sounds of the early 1960's, as well as a listenable album for the uncommitted buyer.

I could not wait to receive my Floyd Cramer's cd after I listened to the samples. There were a lot of the songs I knew long ago but I did not assocoate them with this artiste instrumentally. Now I know. This Cramer music will live on through the years mainly appreciated by people in their late forties and onwards. Kramer performes with such sweet and nostalgic passion on this cd, making it ideal entertainment at a dinnertime at a soft volume. Consider this s wonderful gift for someone close to you. Highly recommended!!!

Floyd Cramer is an excellent pianist and his music is very relaxing and easy to listen to. He certainly knows how to tickle the ivories.
