(9-CD box set with book) This, the third of the Bear Family boxed sets of Frankie Laine recordings, completes the series, and takes in his studio work for the Columbia label through the years 1956 to 1964. The set includes the long sought after and folksy album "Balladeer," plus previously unissued tracks and alternate takes. Equally fascinating is the inclusion on CD for the first time, and often in stereo, all his lost, but no less exciting singles that failed to chart. Try "Choombala Bey," "Et Voila" or "Miss Satan" and be amazed at how fresh they sound 40 years on. The hardback book is packed with stunning and often previously unseen illustrations, with a fully annotated discography & bio by Todd Everett.
