Big Beat/I Cry for You

The Big Beat/I Cry for You

by Johnnie Ray
     
 
Fifties heartthrob Johnnie Ray really had a knack for dramatic interpretations of romantic songs. With that in mind, his delivery takes on a totally different standard of excellence considering Ray was practically deaf. This Collectables CD makes available two long-out-of-print LPs originally made for Columbia in the '50s: Big Beat and I Cry for You.
