Best of Johnnie & Jack

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
It's easy to overlook how innovative the brother-in-law duo of Johnnie Wright and Jack Anglin were in the early '50s.

This well-selected single-disc retrospective of their years with RCA has all the absolute essentials, including the 1951 gem "Poison Love" and their classic covers of "Oh Baby Mine I Get So Lonesome," "Goodnight Sweetheart Goodnight," and "Sincerely," making this a fine introduction to the duo's subtle and innovative body of work.
