Yes Tonight Josephine
Import, Box Set
|New from||Used from|
After the astonishing and unprecedented success of the early Fifties, Johnnie Ray's career tailed off during the later Fifties...and after. The lessening success was compounded by a cocktail of personal problems, but he still recorded prolifically, and this 5-CD set documents his recording career from 1957 to the end of the 1960s.

I think that this collection, unlike the first boxed set, is for the new Johnnie Ray fan, and they are legion, or the long-time aficianado, who is determined to own everything that exists by this phenomenal artist. I must say that even an artist as accomplished and unique as Johnnie Ray had some unfortunate recordings and they are on this set, along with the excellent material. So, although this is not a total dog, it's superfluous tracks are excessive in order to fill out the five cd's which make up the set.
Don't misunderstand me. I am a huge Johnnie Ray fan and own everything on CD that is available. I just feel that there wasn't enough high-quality material available to compose another collection that would come up to the excellence of the "Cry" boxed set.
