Product Description:

Billy Grammer is remembered for his big crossover hit, "Gotta Travel On," which reached the Top Five on the pop and country charts in 1959. He scored only two other hits on the Monument label: "The Kissin' Tree" and "Bonaparte's Retreat," neither of which made the country chart even though the latter is a tune by Pee Wee King. This 21-track anthology reissues Grammer's 1959 LP Travelin' On and adds the aforementioned pair of hits plus a half dozen commercially unsuccessful tracks recorded in the mid-'70s when Grammer returned to Monument after years of label-hopping. Gotta Travel On: The Very Best of Billy Grammer might have been wiser to stick with early recordings, but is a very thorough anthology considering Grammer's paucity of hits during this period. ~ Greg Adams
