Pat Boone was still alive at the time of writing, age 80 - and while the mark he made on popular music is limited by comparison to
Elvis, there's no doubting he was responsible for some of the best-remembered classic pop of the era, Boone's music may have
been sweet and simple but, as critic Stephen Barnard put it, 'he was a refreshing change from the risqu flamboyance of
Johnnie Ray and the heavy masculinity of Frankie Laine.' Listen to his greatest hits on this superb 2 disc compilation
including "Moody River" and "Speedy Gonzales".
