This twenty-one track collection gathers together all of Troy Shondell's recordings from his days on the Mercury, Liberty and Everest labels as well as those that appeared on several smaller independent labels in America. Includes detailed notes tracing his recording career between 1957 and 1962.

Troy Shondell made his first records between 1957 and 1960 under his real name Gary Shelton. In 1961 he finally got his breakthrough hit, when under the name Troy Shondell he released the million selling "This Time", a Top 10 hit in America and a Top 30 hit in Britain and now looked on as a classic recording of this Chips Moman song.
