Johnny Tillotson may not be the most revered teen idol, but he was one of the most successful. He lived on American Bandstand, Hy Lit, and other teen shows, and 16 Magazine featured him regularly. Some of Tillotson's music had a light country edge; he was country before country was cool. He teases on many styles on these 18 golden classics, but never ventures far from his wholesome teen persona. ~ Andrew Hamilton
