Johnny Tillotson: It Keeps Right On A-Hurtin - You Can Never Stop Me Loving You (CD)

(ACE Records) 24 Tracks - Cadence 1962-1963 -

This latest instalment in Ace’s series of 2-on-1 pairings of original Johnny Tillotson albums brings together the second and third of the three that he released on Cadence, the label that he recorded for between 1958-1963 and that established him as a major chart force. Some of these recordings have been issued several times during the CD era, but we believe that this is the first time that they have been presented exactly in the same format as their original vinyl albums. Ace included several of the tracks on a hits compilation more than a decade and a half ago but, even so, ten of the 24 selections here have not previously appeared on one of our CDs.

IT KEEPS RIGHT ON A-HURTIN’, recorded and released in 1962, was Johnny’s most successful album of all time, spending over six months on the LP charts. It features mostly songs from acclaimed country writers, and it yielded four Hot 100 hits, most of which also crossed over to the country charts proper. However Johnny Tillotson was not yet ready to be perceived as an exclusively country artist, and his 1963 sessions for Cadence moved him firmly back into the pop mainstream. He had three Hot 100 chart entries that year, but Archie Bleyer, the boss of Cadence, had decided to close the company and generously offered to release Johnny early from his existing contract. 

This meant that his last LP, YOU CAN NEVER STOP ME LOVING YOU, was basically a collection of previously-uncompiled Cadence single sides, plus a pair of tracks that had previously only been available on multi-artists compilations, a reprise of Funny How Time Slips Away (replaced here by an unissued first take of It Keeps Right On A-Hurtin’) from LP 25058; and some previously unissued sides from 1959 to make up the requisite 12 cuts of the album. Among the latter, it’s interesting to hear the ‘Tillotson Touch’ on the titles that are more familiar in recordings by Frankie Avalon (Venus), Ritchie Valens (Donna) and the Fleetwoods (Come Softly To Me) - it’s possible that these were cut for a specific “JT Sings The Hits of ‘59” project that didn’t come to anything. This album didn’t chart, unlike Tillotson’s other LPs, but this is probably because there was no promotional push, as Cadence was closing. (Sales can’t have been helped by omitting to feature a photo of Tillotson’s handsome visage on the jacket, instead it was packaged in a rather odd flowery cover.) 

Beautifully remastered, and brought to you in stereo wherever possible (sadly not all, due to considerable and irreparable deterioration of the original album masters) this package is an essential addtion to anyone’s collection of Tillotson albums on CD – almost all of which are available on Ace.

Johnny Tillotson

At the time of writing, it is now over 52 years since Johnny Tillotson made his first professional recordings for Cadence in August 1958. In that time he has achieved what many fail to do in music industry. He has lasted! After a lifetime in the firmament of popular music, he remains an attraction in the U.S.A. and abroad where his appearances in cabaret and one nighters are still enjoyed by fans many of whom, have stood by him through five decades of music, films, television and concerts

Born in Jacksonville, Florida on April 20th 1939, Johnny was actually raised in Palatka by his grandparents but he travelled back to be with parents each summer. His mother was Doris and his father was Jack, a country music disc jockey.

It appears that performing was in his blood from an early age and indeed by the age of nine, he was featured on the local radio show, Young Folks Revue. Encouraged by his grandparents, he set about turning himself into becoming a professional singer. He sang at local functions and had played so much locally by the time he entered Palatka Senior High School, his reputation had preceded him and he was quite well established and known in the state of Florida.

He guested on the television show, The Toby Dowdy Show, where he became a regular with a three year contract and when the show itself ceased transmission, the opportunity opened up for Johnny to have his own show on WDGA-TV. Juggling a television show and studies at the University of Florida was not easy but Johnny pulled it off and he successfully graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Journalism and Communications in 1959 despite the distractions of his passion for music.

At the same time that all this was going on, Johnny has started writing songs and when, in 1957, a local disc jockey sent six of his songs to the National Pet Milk Talent contest, Johnny found himself in Nashville performing on WSM Radio.

In Nashville he was heard by Lee Rosenberg, a Nashville music publisher who was so impressed by what she heard that she took a tape of Johnny singing to Archie Bleyer at Cadence Records, already scoring highly in the pop charts with hit titles by The Chordettes, The Everly Brothers and Andy Williams as well as achieving a #17 hit in his own right with The Naughty Lady Of Shady Lane as 1954 turned into 1955.

The hits started immediately with Dreamy Eyes charting in November 1958 and peaking at #63 (reissued in 1961, it moved 28 positions higher to #35). Twenty-six chart entries followed in the U.S. with his biggest being Poetry In Motion which advanced to #2 in the States in late 1960 but was eclipsed by its success in the U.K. where it spent three weeks in the #1 position at the early part of 1961.

 

Undoubtedly Johnny's greatest success a songwriter was with It Keeps Right On A-Hurtin' which was a #3 pop and #4 country hit for him in 1962. Many covers and revivals followed with perhaps Elvis Presley's rendering on his 'From Elvis In Memphis' album in 1969 being the most prestigious.

During his association with Cadence Records (1958-1963), Johnny recorded 41 different titles in his own right. He recorded three songs on more than one occasion and he added his vocal to a session by French singer, Genevieve, on one song.

When the Cadence tapes were analysed, it was found that all but one performance existed in outtake form; the only track to survive purely as a master was Love Is Blind (Cadence 1365).

There was one song, Please Help Me I'm Falling that had never been released before and like something akin to the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb, we found a session recorded in New York with King Curtis on sax playing on an earlier attempt at Poetry In Motion.

Within the master tapes boxes, the master take, as originally issued, tends to be missing from the spools.
