2 LPs on 1 CD: CALL OF THE WILD (1962)/WANDERLUST (1963).
Originally released on Columbia Records.
Recording information: 02/13/1962-10/24/1962.
This two-fer from Collectables features a pair of out of print Frankie Laine LPs, Call of the Wild and Wanderlust, originally issued in 1962 and 1963, respectively. Each of the 24 tracks has a continuity dominated by easy listening versions of popular songs, many of which are country & western, including "North to Alaska," "Tumbling Tumbleweeds," "Riders in the Sky," "What Kind of Fool Am I?," and "On the Road to Mandalay." This is an enjoyable reissue from the large Frankie Laine catalog on Columbia Records, but most listeners would be better served with one of the many compilations in print. ~ Al Campbell
