• Sammy TURNER - Always

With his sweet, mellifluous voice, SAMMY TURNER was favourably compared to singers like Tommy Edwards and The Platters' Tony Williams.

Like both Edwards and The Platters, Sammy enjoyed his biggest successes with rocked-up revivals of oldies, viz: 'Sweet Annie Laurie', 'Lavender Blue', 'Always', 'Symphony', and 'Paradise', all of which made the US charts.

He came to the UK in 1959 and made a couple of appearances on Boy Meets Girl, which also helped push 'Always' into the UK charts.

This compilation anthologises his recordings for the Big Top label, between 1959-61 and features the rare and collectable Lavender Blue Moods LP, alongside ten singles, including all his hits.

Although the majority of these sides were produced by Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller, the celebrated 'Raincoat In The River' was an early, rare Phil Spector production.

This exceptional body of work has been unavailable on CD for many years.
