1-CD with 28-page booklet, 26 tracks. Playing time approx. 69 mns.
A real double-value package, this includes Mitchum's 1956 calypso set on Capitol -- a classic of Fifties kitsch that attracts big, big bucks from lounge music addicts (re-issued on 180gram vinyl by Bear Family, cat. no. BAF 18007). Then we've rounded the set out with his only Capitol single, Ballad Of Thunder Road and My Honey's Lovin' Arms, and with his ultra-rare 1960s Monument recordings, including
Little Old Wine Drinker Me, and Walker's Woods which showed that Mitchum could really sing. They don't make leading men like Robert Mitchum any more. When was the last time Mel Gibson sung calypsos.
