Review

Frankie Laine made a commercial comeback with the gold-selling "Moonlight Gambler" during the winter of 1956-1957, his first Top Ten hit since 1953. With the further impetus being the success of the then-recent Johnny Mathis compilation, Johnny's Greatest Hits (the first-ever "greatest-hits" album), Columbia Records assembled Frankie Laine's Greatest Hits, a 12-track album leading off with "Moonlight Gambler" and also featuring Laine's biggest hits of the early '50s on Columbia, "Jezebel," "Rose, Rose, I Love You," "Jealousy (Jalousie)," "High Noon (Do Not Forsake Me)," and "I Believe." The label eschewed Laine's duet hits with Jo Stafford, Doris Day, and Jim Boyd, and also ignored some Top Ten hits in favor of re-recordings of two of the singer's biggest hits during his Mercury Records period, "That's My Desire" and "That Lucky Old Sun," in addition to a couple of lesser hits and a couple of non-hits. ~ William Ruhlmann
