This two-fer from Collectables features a pair of out of print Bobby Vinton LPs: Mr. Lonely and Country Boy, both originally issued on Epic Records in 1964 and 1966, respectively. Highlights among the 22 tracks include "Crazy," "I'll Never Smile Again," and the hit "Mr. Lonely," which are pleasant, but not essential. ~ Al Campbell
