The multi-talented DICK GLASSER, who also recorded prolifically as DICK LORY, cut a slew of Rock & Roll and Teeners' Pop 45s between 1956-62, and also enjoyed considerable success as a songwriter, producer and music publisher. Although his commercial success was patchy (he registered his biggest hit, 'Handsome Guy', in Australia!), sides like 'Catty Town', 'Cool It Baby', 'Crazy Love', 'Wild-Blooded Woman', 'Crazy Little Daisy', 'Heartaches Over You' and 'The Pain Is Here' (perhaps his finest record), all included herein, are highly sought-after collectors' items. This compilation presents the very best of his releases between 1956-62, across seven different record labels, billed variously as Dicks Glasser and/or Lory, as well as "guest appearances" fronting Pee Wee King's band and with his three brothers, as Dickie & The Gee's and The Toppers. The first time that this body of work has been thus compiled, this is all monstrously good stuff, while a great many of these sides have never previously appeared on CD.
