Album Notes and Credits

Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Personnel: Pat Boone (vocals).
Muze PNote Liner Note Author: Don Ovens.
Muze PNote Pat Boone's smooth, amiable singing style marked him as a pure pop crooner when he came on the scene in the mid-1950s, and while his clean-cut image (and sound) positioned him as the acceptable alternative to the grittier rock & roll that was beginning to emerge, early R&B/rock & roll styles were very much a part of his musical makeup. This is made clear on the collection PAT'S GREAT HITS, a concise compendium featuring some of his early charters. While some of the biggies (perhaps most notably "Ain't That a Shame") are absent, it's amazing to hear Boone dig into Ivory Joe Hunter's "I Almost Lost My Mind" with the same elan he brings to a fully orchestrated pop ballad such as "April Love." While Boone's style was smoother than anything generally accepted as rock & roll, there's no doubt that the man heard here doing his best Elvis on "Don't Forbid Me" was heavily inspired by earthier sounds.

Artist Overview

An icon and an institution, this alleged descendent of Daniel Boone is a dependable hit-maker who kept clean-cut American youth entertained throughout the 1950s with skillful pop crooning and wholesome showmanship. Boone had a staggering 38 Top 40 hits, putting him in the record-selling ranks of Elvis, Madonna, and the Beatles. Many of these hits were "respectable," cleaned-up versions of raunchier R&B numbers originally performed by black artists. While this did little to endear Pat Boone to black musicians or their fans, it did provide the blueprint for making rock-&-roll (and subsequent controversial styles) palatable to the masses. After almost 50 years in show business, and many albums of both a secular and gospel-oriented nature, Boone had a late-career triumph with his humorous heavy-metal covers album.
