• Leroy VAN DYKE - Walk On By

In November 1994, in a survey which looked back to October 1958, Billboard magazine identified LEROY VAN DYKE's Countrypolitan classic 'Walk On By' as the biggest country record of that thirty-six year period, based on sales, plays and weeks on the charts.

Although Van Dyke is chiefly remembered for his biggest hit, he'd already enjoyed a million-seller with his very first release, 'The Auctioneer', five years earlier.

This compilation anthologises Leroy's career between 1956-62, featuring all his studio recordings during this period, including demo's, outtakes, a rare German-language version of 'Walk On By' and his first two Mercury LPs, Walk On By and Moving Van Dyke.

Also includes C&W and crossover pop hits like 'Big Man In A Big House', 'If A Woman Answers', 'Dim Dark Corner', 'I Sat Back And Let It Happen' and 'Black Cloud'.

Many of the tracks featured on Disc 2 have never previously appeared on CD.

Although now well into his eighties, Van Dyke continues to perform regular concerts and still has an ambassadorial role with the Country Music Association.
