Conway Twitty was an artist who successfully spanned the rock’n’roll, pop and country genres in a career that lasted over three decades, and was best-known for his landmark US and UK No.1 It’s Only Make Believe. This 62-track 2CD set comprises the A- and B-sides of his singles for Mercury and MGM during this formative era in his career, during which he not only had his iconic No.1 with the brooding and dramatic It’s Only Make Believe. When It’s Only Make Believe was first released, because of vocal similarities, many listeners assumed that the song was actually recorded by Elvis Presley, using “Conway Twitty” as a pseudonym. He had 13 other chart entries, including the US No.6 Lonely Blue Boy and the UK No.5 Mona Lisa, before forging a niche as a leading force in the country market. It also includes selected tracks from his albums released during these years, Conway Twitty Sings, Saturday Night with Conway Twitty, Lonely Blue Boy, The Rock & Roll Story, The Conway Twitty Touch, and Portrait Of A Fool. This substantial overview of his output during the late 50s early 60s, showcases not only his fine voice, but his versatility in performing material from out-and-out rock’n’roll to ballads and country-flavoured songs with equal panache.
Reviews For The Conway Twitty Collection 1957-62
Vintage Rock (Issue 41) - John Howard
“This 62-song set covers all the bases and every hit until 1962… Compiler and booklet writer Paul Watts, despite to doing a great job, loses one star from five when he failed to include my personal fave, I Vibrate.” ****
Now Dig This (Issue 433) - Trevor Cajiao
“Crammed with Conway classics… a celebration of Twitty ‘The Rocker’ – and he was one of the best.”
