Description

The painfully-shy, self-effacing Ned Miller was perhaps the most reluctant singing star of all time - at one stage in the 60s, he even paid one of his co-writers to go onstage and pretend to be 'Ned Miller' instead of him. Essentially a songwriter who occasionally found himself obliged to cut records, Miller wrote his first million-seller, 'Dark Moon', in 1956, when it became a hit for Gale Storm and Bonnie Guitar. He wrote subsequently and recorded 'From A Jack To A King' himself in 1957, although it was unsuccessful the first time around. It was reissued in late 1962, following interest from a jukebox operator, and went on to become a massive worldwide hit, selling more than two million copies during 1963 alone. This compilation gathers together everything which Ned Miller recorded commercially between 1956-62 including major collectors' items like 'Gypsy'/'With Enough Love', Spade Cooley's 'Cold Grey Bars' and notably, the bizarre 'Ring The Bell For Johnny'/'Girl From The Second World', on which he duets with Jan Howard. Four of these sides - i.e. two rare singles - have never previously appeared on CD.
