Description

This unique compilation features everything that Kris Jensen recorded 1959-62, variously for the Colpix, Leader, Kapp and Hickory labels.

Jensen is known predominantly for his 1962 hit 'Torture', a song which had originally been custom-written by Felice & Boudleaux Bryant for the Everly Brothers. However, Jensen had been recording since 1959, and his early R&R/teener releases have long been sought-after collectors' items.

Includes hard-to-find regional hits like 'Bonnie Baby', 'School Bus', 'The Jackie Look' (the latter, something of a cult 45), 'Three Vanilla, Two Chocolate, One Pistachio, Ice Cream Cone', 'Don't Take Her From Me', 'Big As I Can Dream' and 'Donna, Donna'.

Also includes his debut LP, 'Torture', titled after his breakthrough hit.

Most of these sides were penned by Nashville's finest songwriters, e.g. the (aforementioned) Bryants, John D. Loudermilk, Bob Montgomery, Roy Orbison & Joe Melson, and Earl Sinks. Several of Jensen's early, 1960-61 sides, have never previously appeared on CD.
