All teenagers have dreams, sometimes dreams come true. Little Frankie Lymon wanted to be a big star and his dream came true. Before the age of 13 he wrote and performed a song that became the rallying cry for a whole generation. Frankie was a teenager and he sang to other teenagers. They knew what he was singing about because they lived it every day. His songs literally created rock 'n' roll as music for, by, and about teenagers. On this collection of hits and rare tracks Frankie grew and developed alongside the music. Behind the scenes, his personal life was filled with the joys of success followed by a slow decline as he fought addiction and failing health. These are the original recordings of some of the all-time Fifties classics. 33 tracks.
