A founder-member of the legendary Johnny Burnette Trio (and famously, the older brother of Johnny) DORSEY BURNETTE pursued a successful solo career after quitting the Trio in 1956. Between 1958 and 1962 he recorded prolifically for at least eight different record companies, cutting a fine body of work which includes a number of highly prized Rockabilly collectables. He enjoyed sporadic commercial success, notably with '(There Was A) Tall Oak Tree', 'Hey Little One', 'Big Rock Candy Mountain', 'The Ghost Of Billy Malloo', and 'Feminine Touch', all of which are included herein. This 34-track set is the first comprehensive compilation of his early career, across the many and various labels he recorded for during this period, kicking off with the Johnny Burnette Trio's 'Midnight Train', on which Dorsey took lead vocals. A half-dozen of these sides have never previously appeared on CD, making this a must-have for Dorsey Burnette fans.
