Description by OLDIES.com:
Now back-in-print! Ray Peterson began singing in his early teens when he was being treated for polio. He soon began singing professionally and when he moved to L.A., his four-octave voice soon brought him a recording contract (he formed his own label, Dune Records, in 1960). Peterson scored his biggest hit with the highly dramatic "Tell Laura I Love Her" and immediately followed it up with another Top 10 hit, "Corinna, Corinna." All his best remembered tunes are included here.
- 1.Tell Laura I Love Her
- 2.Wonder Of You
- 3.Come And Get It
- 4.Till Then
- 6.Goodnight My Love (Pleasant Dreams)
- 8.Answer Me My Love
- 9.What Do You Want To Make Those Eyes At Me For?
- 10.Richer Than I
- 11.My Blue Angel
- 12.I'm Gone
- 13.Corrina, Corrina
- 14.Missing You
Personnel: Ray Peterson (vocals).

Collectables' reissue of Ray Peterson's RCA debut album, Tell Laura I Love Her, naturally features the hit title track, perhaps the definitive teen death song of the early '60s. The remainder of the disc contains the other 11 songs on the original record, which are all in a similar albeit less morbid vein. Apart from the singles "The Wonder of You" and "Goodnight My Love (Pleasant Dreams)," there aren't many hidden gems here, but much of the music is quite enjoyable as artifacts. The label has added two Phil Spector-produced bonus tracks, "Corrina, Corrina" and "Missing You," which he released on the Dunes label after leaving RCA, and their presence effectively makes the disc a greatest-hits collection and, for many listeners, all they need to know about Peterson. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
