Description by OLDIES.com:
Frankie Laine, a dynamic and magnetic singer whose popularity lasted well into the rock era, was one of the most successful pop singers of the '50s and '60s. Laine reached the charts over 60 times during his heyday. The four albums collected together in this boxed set document the work Laine did for Columbia Records in the late '50s; among the highlights is his immortal performance of the theme from "Rawhide".
