The first Swamp Pop superstar, Jimmy Clanton emerged from Baton Rouge, Louisiana in 1958 with the million-selling 'Just A Dream', and went on to become Ace Records' most commercially-successful recording artist.

This 64 track 2CD set presents a comprehensive career overview between 1958-1962, including all his As and B-sides and the standout tracks from four LPs.

Features a dozen hit singles, including million sellers 'Just A Dream', 'A Letter To An Angel', 'A Part Of Me', 'Go Jimmy Go' and 'Venus In Blue Jeans'. Also presented here are many collectors' rarities, including movie soundtrack clips and unreleased tracks, which are unavailable elsewhere on CD.

Jimmy Clanton continues to appear in R&R and R&B revival festivals, and in 2007 was inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame.
