Although practically deaf, pop singer Johnnie Ray's tear-inflected delivery tabbed him as an early 1950s sensation. His 1951 histrionic million-seller "Cry",with background vocals by The Four Lads, remained perched atop the charts for nearly three months. Nicknamed "The Prince of Wails", Ray encored with "The Little White Cloud That Cried", "Walkin' My Baby Back Home" and "Just Walking in the Rain". His frenzied antics set off riots among female admirers during his heyday, but by 1959 the hits were through. Staple holes at upper margin. Fine condition.
