Description by OLDIES.com:

Johnny Thunder started singing in high school, church, and on street corners in his native Florida. Soon he was performing back-up vocals in New York City for the then-unknowns Dionne Warwick, Cissy Houston and Luther Vandross. His distinctive voice stood out and soon he was a solo artist. He had his one big hit in 1962 with "Loop De Loop", which was basically a nursery rhyme set to music. This is a collection of his best.

Product Description:

Personnel: Johnny Thunder (vocals).
Liner Note Author: Mark Marymont.
Arranger: Teddy Vann.
Not to be confused with Johnny Thunders, the legendary junkie guitarist of the New York Dolls and the Heartbreakers, Johnny Thunder was a dynamic R&B and rock & roll singer who originally sang as a backing vocalist for the Drifters and the Ink Spots. He had a hit in 1963 with "Loop de Loop," and an infectious dance number reminiscent of Hank Ballard or a more soulful Chubby Checker. Although he had another minor hit a few years later with "Make Love to Me," a duet with Ruby Winters, during the early '60s he wasn't able to successfully follow up "Loop de Loop." Nevertheless, even if they didn't chart, a few of his subsequent singles were pretty good, as evidenced by Collectables' Loop de Loop: The Very Best of Johnny Thunder. It's certainly not flawless -- a few of the songs are shameless attempts to replicate "Loop de Loop," and others are simply silly -- but for archivists of early-'60s R&B and rock, it's worth a listen. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Rating 5.0 LOOP DE LOOP--THE BEST OF JOHNNY THUNDER Music Lover: from LITTLETON, CO US -- April, 1, 2003

If you have ever bought an album with only a couple of hits you liked, you won't have that problem with this one. From begining to end it's solid. One of the best R&B albums I ever got.
