1-CD mit 32-seitigem Booklet, 30 Einzeltitel. Spieldauer ca. 67 Minuten.
Dreißig unglaubliche Capitol-Aufnahmen aus den Jahren 1957-1959 von dem stets missverstandenen und tragisch unterbewerteten Tommy Sands. Tommy nahm fleißig auf und fand dennoch Zeit, Nancy Sinatra ins Bett zu kriegen. Es war nicht alles großartig; aber es ist genau das, was man braucht. Zu den Titeln gehören Teenage Crush, Ring-a-Ding, Man Like Wow, Soda Pop Pop, Hawaiian Rock, Hearts Of Stone, Hey Miss Fannie, Such A Night, Oop Shoop und Blue Ribbon Baby.
Artikeleigenschaften von Tommy Sands: The Worryin' Kind
Thanks to his 1955 friendship with the pre-international superstardom Elvis, Tommy Sands was recommended by Col. Tom Parker for the starring part in a major television show called 'The Singing Idol' (loosely featured on Presley's meteoric rise). Sands had knocked around for a while as a young country singer, recording eight singles for RCA, but Capitol's Teenage Crush – featured in 'The Singing Idol' - became one of the fastest breaking discs of the period: eventually reaching number two in early 1957.
The song is somewhat identikit Elvis, with a low vocal and a slow tempo, but it is enlivened by some tough guitar back-up and a lyric that restates the same old teenage problem – this time somewhat pointedly aimed at parents in an early rumble of inter-generational dissent: "They call it a teen-age crush/ They don't know how I feel/ They call it a teen-age crush/ They can't believe this is real/ They've forgotten when they were young/ And the way tried to be free/ All they say is 'This young generation/ Is just not the way it used to be'".
