Description by OLDIES.com:

R&B singer Sammy Turner's polished and smooth delivery brought him crossover success on the pop charts in the late 1950's. His lush production techniques provide a lavish background for his distinguished vocals, as evidenced on tracks such as "Lavender Blue", "Always", and his biggest hit, "Goodnight, Irene".

Product Description:

Liner Note Author: Mark Marymont.
Sammy Turner is a classy pop singer who's often mislabeled R&B, which is perplexing because there aren't many traces of rhythm or blues in his music. Turner is MOR, easy listening, and pop, but hardly R&B. This best-of presents 19 of Turner's best, executed in his laid-back methodical style, including his signature piece, "Lavender Blue" -- a title that aptly describes his voice. Turner's vocal approach worked well during the pioneering '50s but dated badly when the '60s rolled around. If you enjoy crooners like Nat King Cole, Johnny Hartman, Billy Eckstine, Johnny Mathis, etc., you will love this CD, because Sammy Turner's in that class. ~ Andrew Hamilton
