Although Floyd Robinson is largely remembered as the archetypal "One-Hit-Wonder", for his 1959 million-seller 'Makin' Love', there was rather more to him than that. A multi-talented performer, he carved out parallel careers as a Country singer (he was a member of the Grand Ole Opry in 1949, at the age of seventeen), Pop singer, songwriter, and session guitarist / pedal steel player, while in the 1970s, he went on to cut a hugely successful series of Christian-themed children's albums. This compilation presents a "Very Best Of" Floyd's early career, between 1952-62, starting with his recordings with Autry Inman as Jack &?Daniel, and finds him involved in Hillbilly, Honky-Tonk, Country and mainstream Pop. This is the first time that this body of work has been thus compiled (earlier anthologies have concentrated entirely on Robinson's Pop and Novelty recordings) and many sides featured herein have never previously appeared in the digital format.
