Fifties heartthrob Johnnie Ray really had a knack for dramatic interpretations of romantic songs. With that in mind, his delivery takes on a totally different standard of excellence considering Ray was practically deaf. This Collectables CD makes available two long-out-of-print LPs originally made for Columbia in the '50s: Big Beat and I Cry for You. Highlights include passionate versions of "Pretty-Eyed Baby," "How Long, How Long Blues," "Lotus Blossom," "Everyday (I Have the Blues)," and "Trouble in Mind." ~ Al Campbell
