Liner Note Author: Alan Robinson .
Rockabilly purists tend to look down on Johnny Burnette's post-rock & roll trio, teen idol work of the early '60s, and this CD reissue of two of Burnette's solo albums shows why--up to a point. Granted, there's a lot of cutesy female choruses and sappy tunes, but there's also some very charming, extremely well sung pop that ranks with the best of the period, including his biggest hit "You're Sixteen." Other highlights here include the unbelievably melodramatic and morbid "Moody River" (in which Johnny's girlfriend drowns herself out of guilt), the bizarre patriotic love song "God, Country and My Baby," and Burnette's own "Choo Choo Train," the album's closest thing to a rocker, although it's unlikely to be mistaken for the Johnny Burnette Trio's "Train Kept a Rollin'."
