finally santo and johnny have come to cd!!! for years i listened on my fathers scretched and crackily albums but now the power of the dreamy steel guitar is in my hands and on cd with crisp clear sound and all the modern age has to offer. this cd is a throwback to the begginning of rock and roll during its begginnings in the 1950's
i will warn you that this cd has time traveling ability and from the first reverb filled note, you will be yanked back to a more simple musical time that catches this wonderul band before the surf era. this hard to find cd is one valuable find for me, the avid eclectic collector.

A great dynamic duo in the 1950s popularly known for their steel guitars. This album is a ideal blend to complement with my Wurlitzer Mini CD Jukebox Bubbler... the dreamy guitaristic tunes from All Night Diner, Sleepwalk,Teardrops, Venus and of course Blue Moon ... et al ... gave significant credits to the 50s ...I had a made a tremendous effort finding the exact album in Singapore, and I had finally found them in Amazon ! Thanks Amazon !!!

This is really laid back stuff. Interpretation of 'Summertime' is absolutely superb. After years of hearing crackly old recordings from Mum & Dads vinyls this is truly a 'must have' CD if you're into 'Sleepwalk' and 'Teardrop' from Santo & Johnny. Many good tracks in their style. And to think these recordings are from before I was born!!

Santo & Johnny are most famous for their romantic standard Sleep Walk, written by the brothers along with their sister back in 1959. There is a scene in the Stephen King movie Sleepwalkers where the main antagonist, a goodlooking high school psychopath that is transformed into a blood drinking cat-like creature in the night time, is sitting in his room looking at a picture of the girl he is in love with while writing her name on his arm with the help of a knife and at the same time listening to Santo & Johnny's Sleep Walk. This hard-to-get cd contains 23 early pre-surf-era songs filled with steel guitars and reverbs that will make you spell bound forever. This is pure magic. Perfect for romantic moments with someone you care for. In other words, perfect music to make out to. Or, for the losers among us, perfect music to sit all alone in your room and be unhappily in love to.

Sleep Walk and a couple of other Santo & Johnny cuts were at the top of my list in the late 50's. Have had a hard time running down their albums in recent years. Thanks, Amazon.

I've been on a 50s rock & roll kick as of late and bought The Best of Santo & Johnny after remembering I loved their tune, "Sleep Walk." Well, I just popped it into my CD player and it's a great album! I love the slide guitar or steel guitar and the early "surf rock" sound. Who knew these two brothers from Brooklyn could play such mean "surf rock"? Highly recommended!

In browsing Amazon.com, I was disappointed to see that not a one of Santo & Johnny's original LPs is in print on CD! Their music deserves to be heard and I'm glad this CD is around so I can mellow out/swoon to their awesome music!

Thanks Stardust records and thanks Amazon.com!

Great instrumental music and variety of styles. The songs are short but sweet so it keeps moving right along. I love the cover of "Venus" and the upbeat numbers. No "duds" here, just unique, accessible, uncomplicated cool music that's fits in any occasion. I've had a copy in my car and at the pool for years and years.
