Guy Mitchell
Styles: Pop
Catalogue Number: ADDCD3134
Guy Mitchell was one of the few artists whose career spanned both the traditional middle-of-the-road pop era of the early ‘50s and the rock ‘n’ roll explosion which dominated the latter half of the decade. He was equally popular on both sides of the Atlantic, enjoying a string of hits during the early ‘50s in the USA before the UK gave him a run of success when things went quiet in the US, followed by his dramatic return to the top of the charts with the landmark international success of “Singing The Blues”, and other significant follow-up successes, including his final No. 1 in 1959 with “Heartaches By The Number”. This 2-CD set traces his complete chart career, featuring all his hits in the UK and USA, from his early successes with productions by Columbia’s legendary A&R man Mitch Miller, performing novelty songs from the highly distinctive pen of Bob Merrill, through the rock ‘n’ roll era, where he successfully covered country hits by Marty Robbins until the British invasion saw the end of his pop hits. It is an entertaining and varied retrospective of the chart career of a versatile and talented interpreter of the pop zeitgeist.
