• Collection 1956-1962 [2xCD] - George Hamilton IV

George Hamilton IV was a country singer and musician who started his professional life a teen idol pop singer with the 1956 Top 10 hit with his debut single A Rose and a Baby Ruth on the small Colonial label, immediately signing to ABC-Paramount for whom he had further hits as his style moved towards a blend of pop, country and rockabilly, as he had further notable hits including the Top 10 Why Dont They Understand and I Know Where Im Going, both of which also made the UK charts. 

By the end of the 50s he had become totally identified with country, moving to Nashville and becoming a member of the Grand Ole Opry, and his hits after 1960 were almost all in the country charts, where he continued to have chart entries through to the late 70s.

This great-value 58-track 2-CD set comprises almost all the A & B sides of his singles during this era for Colonial, ABC-Paramount and RCA, to whom he moved in 1961, plus selected titles from his albums for ABC On Campus and Sing Me A Sad Song (Tribute To Hank Williams) and his first RCA album To You And Yours (From Me And Mine).
