June Valli was a ubiquitous personality on US TV through the 1950s, having come to the fore by the time-honoured route that she shared with many US pop stars, of winning the 'Arthur Godfrey Talent Scouts' TV show, leading to appearances on the Perry Como and Ed Sullivan shows as well as residencies on the 'Stop The Music' and 'Your Hit Parade' programmes. The Arthur Godfrey success led to a recording contract with RCA, with whom she stayed until she signed to Mercury in 1958 and then to United Artists in 1962. She was one of those middle ground pop artists who managed to make the transition from the early '50s style into the post-rock 'n' roll era, which enabled her to have chart hits from 1952 through to 1960. This 83-track 3-CD set focuses on her single and EP releases during the first decade and more of her career through to 1962, by which time she had started to turn her attention towards the album market, and it comprises a substantial proportion of her A & B sides from this era, along with the tracks form her 1956 EPs "All Alone", "The Torch" and "Body And Soul". It naturally features all her career chart entries, including the Top 10 hits "Crying In The Chapel" and "I Understand", as well as her charted versions of big hit songs of the time, "Unchained Melody" and "The Wedding". It's a collection which will appeal to the many fans who remember her from that time, and is an enjoyable showcase for the talent which kept her in the public eye through a changing musical landscape
