It Keeps Right On-Hurtin / You Can Never Stop Me [Import]
- (United Kingdom - Import)
- Artist: Johnny Tillotson
- Format: CD
- Release Date:1/8/2008
The mutual admiration society of Cadence records and Johnny Tillotson continues with a further 2-On-1 release of a pair of his most popular albums for Cadence Records. These two have never been released complete on UK CD before, and between then they cover the years 1962-64, when Cadence folded and Johnny moved to MGM. 'It Keeps Right on a Hurtin' was a huge pop and country hit for Johnny - who composed it himself, in tribute to his musical hero Hank Williams - and both that song and the whole album were recorded in Nashville, using the City's A-list musicians. "You Can Never Stop Me Loving You" is more pop-oriented and features JT on a selection of hits of the late 50s by the likes of Rick Nelson, Ritchie Valens and Frankie Avalon as well as the title track, originally a UK hit for our very own Kenny Lynch. This package also features a desirable 'collector bonus' in the form of the first take of 'It Keeps Right on a Hurtin' (the master was take 7) - which has never been issued before, anywhere in the world.
