• Johnny HORTON - North to Alaska and Other Great Hits - The Early Album Collection

Johnny Horton was one of the best and most popular honky tonk singers of the late '50s and this superb super value 2CD set, with no less than 60 wonderful tracks, is the most comprehensive package outside of a box set.

Includes all the UK and US hit singles up to his tragic death in 1960. Some of the highlights: 'The Battle of New Orleans' and 'North to Alaska' really show off his iconic international hit making prowess!

This collection runs from spectacularly raucous rockabilly through to country ballads and novelty hits and is quite simply a must have for fans of Johnny Horton and this genre.
