Description

Known as "The Golden Voice of Rock 'n' Roll", Ray Peterson was a genuinely remarkable singer with a four-and-a-half octave range. His passionate and dramatic singing style and powerful onstage presence made him a popular live performer and he carved out a big career in Las Vegas, as well as a string of hit records. Peterson famously recorded the original versions of two of the 20th century's iconic R 'n' R songs, "The Wonder of You" (later revived so spectacularly by Elvis) and the controversial death-disc "Tell Laura I Love Her", both of which were million sellers. He also famously worked with a very young Phil Spector at the outset of the latter's career, with whom he recorded the million-selling "Corrina-Corrina" plus a couple of smaller hits, "Be My Girl" and "I Could Have Loved You So Well". Alongside the hits on this 30 track set are a couple of other Rock 'n' Roll rarities which presents the Very Best of his recordings from 1957 to 1962.
