A major star throughout most of the 1950s, Johnnie Ray developed a unique vocal style, one that mixed R&B with classic pop and enabled him to become a major teen idol during the first half of the decade. The arrival of Rock & Roll saw his popularity dim, as least as far as the US was concerned, but fan loyalty on the other side of the Atlantic kept his star very much on the ascendency for a further two decades or so. It was largely because of demand from Europe that he was able to pick up a new contract after his time Columbia came to an end, switching to the Liberty label for the eponymous album in 1962. Although it did not result in any hit singles, it ensured his continued presence on tour throughout Europe.
