Unglaublich! Annähernd 40 Jahre nach der Erstveröffentlichung kam Jingle Bell Rock 1996 zurück in die Charts. Diesen Titel und dazu alle weiteren Decca-Aufnahmen, die Bobby Helms in den Jahren 1956 bis 1962 aufnahm, fanden, zusammen mit den seltenen Speed Singles, ihren Weg auf diese Doppel-CD. Selbstverständlich bekommen Sie Fraulein und My Special Angel zu hören. Rock'n Roll-Fans müssen sich unbedingt Tennesse Rock'n Roll , Long Gone Daddy , Schoolboy Crush und I Don't Owe You Nothin' anhören, vier der insgesamt 62 Titel von einem beliebten Künstler, der einst Trends setzte.

Fraulein spent an entire YEAR on the Country charts [52 weeks] from its debut on March 30, 1957, and stayed at # 1 for four weeks. It also made it to # 36 Billboard Top 100. Not bad for a song that was clearly Country in every respect. It also spawned several copycat and "answer song" hits, with Hank Locklin's Geisha Girl, and Kitty Wells' (I'll Always Be Your) Fraulein being the best examples. The B-side, the quasi-R&R (Got A) Heartsick Feeling would have been a charter too had it not been lost in the phenominal success of the A-side.
So, what does a guy do for an encore after THAT? Some might say that My Special Angel was only half as good in terms of time spent on the charts [26 weeks], but hey, with the backing of The Anita Kerr Singers, it too made it to # 1 for four weeks and did even better on the Top 100, peaking at # 7 in November 1957. Not only that, it crossed over to the R&B charts, hitting # 8. Its flipside, a pure country ballad called Standing At The End Of My World, was also good enough to chart - that is, if disc jockeys had had the presence of mind to simply turn the record over once in a while.
Jingle Bell Rock, while it didn't do that well on the Country charts [# 13], became his highest Top 100 hit at # 6 in December 1957. And it would return to the Pop charts each Christmas season for several years thereafter. The B-side was the novelty Captain Santa Claus (And His Reindeer Space Patrol).
Probably no one will mention hit number four, 1958's Just A Little Lonesome which, b/w the rocking Love My Lady, leveled off at # 10 Country in April. But later that spring Jacqueline became his fourth crossover hit as it rose to # 5 Country and # 63 Top 100 in June, again with the backing of The Anita Kerr Singers, b/w Living In The Shadow Of The Past - another that should have charted on its own.
The next two years with Decca - his last - weren't nearly as profitable as New River Train b/w Miss Memory only reached # 26 Country in April 1959, while a follow-up to Fraulein, Lonely River Rhine b/w Guess We Thought The World Would End, reached # 16 Country in November 1960.
This two-disc set highlights his Decca years, giving us ORIGINAL renditions of all seven charters PLUS their B-sides.
After a seven-year absence from the charts, Bobby returned in 1967 on the Little Darlin' label to rack up five more Country hits, albeit with much less success. These are among the hardest to find for collectors: He Thought He'd Die Laughing [# 46 in 1967]; The Day You Stopped Loving Me [# 60 in 1968]; I Feel You, I Love You [# 53 in 1968]; So Long [# 43 in 1969]; and Mary Goes 'Round [# 41 in 1970].
Sadly, Bobby passed away from emphysema on June 19, 1997, but not before seeing Jingle Bell Rock return to the charts one more time in 1996 following the release of the film Jingle All The Way [# 60 Country].
A marvelous collection of the early years of this highly recognizable voice that should not be missed.
