AllMusic Review by

This two-fer from Collectables features a pair of out of print Frankie Laine LPs, Frankie Laine, Balladeer and Deuces Wild, originally issued in 1959 and 1961, respectively. There is continuity across all of the 24 tracks here, which are dominated by easy listening versions of traditional and popular country & western songs, including "Sixteen Tons," "Ace in the Hole," "Careless Love," "Camptown Races," and "On a Monday." This is an enjoyable reissue from the large Frankie Laine catalog on Columbia Records, but most listeners would be better served with one of the many compilations in print.
