Tommy Sands was initially a country singer and guitarist who made his first records in the early '50s when he was a young teenager and was "discovered" by Col. Tom Parker, but shot to fame when he appeared in an episode of "Kraft Television Theater" in 1957 as 'The Singin' Idol' performing "Teen-Age Crush" which was his debut No. 2 US hit. His teen idol looks also brought him a screen career, and he married Nancy Sinatra, although his divorce from her in 1965 seemed to stop his career in it's tracks. This great-value 58-track 2-CD set comprises the A and B of his early releases on the Freedom and RCA labels, and his singles for Capitol through to 1961, as well as his duets with Annette Funicello from the Disney movie "The Parent Trap" released on Buena Vista. It features all his ten career chart entries, including the No. 2 "Teen-Age Crush", and the Top 30 hits "Going Steady", "Sing, Boy, Sing" and "The Old Oaken Bucket", his biggest UK hit. It's a comprehensive trawl across the decade which comprised the core of his career as a recording artist.
