Known throughout his life and career as "The Southern Gentleman", Sonny James was one of the very first C&W/Pop crossover artists, back in the 50s. In total, he would go on to register 72 C&W and Pop hits between 1953-1983, including an unprecedented run of 16 consecutive #1 C&W singles between 1967-71. This compilation is drawn from his 45rpm releases between 1952-62, across five different labels, Capitol, NRC, RCA-Victor, Groove and Dot, of which around half were C&W and/or Pop hits. Included is his first major crossover success, the multi-million-selling "Young Love", which topped both the C&W and Pop charts in 1957, alongside other major hits like "For Rent (One Empty Heart)", "Twenty Feet Of Muddy Water", "The Cat Came Back", "You're The Reason I'm In Love", "First Date, First Kiss, First Love", and "Uh-Huh-Mm". Also included are collectors' items like "Let's Go Bunny Huggin'", "Red Mud", "I Wish This Night Would Never End" and his unlikely vocal cover version of The Shadows' worldwide instro hit "Apache". His non-Capitol sides are virtually impossible to find elsewhere on CD.
