AllMusic Review by

Guy Mitchell was a crooner in the Bing Crosby mold who negotiated the commercial changes of the '50s by recording a variety of novelties, pop/rockers and story songs that delightfully kept pace with the times while maintaining a connection with earlier pop traditions. His smooth vocal approach on the mild rockers is comparable to Pat Boone's rock & roll efforts, while the story songs recall Frankie Laine a bit. The Definitive Guy Mitchell is an exhaustive and excellent two-disc anthology that compiles all of his pop hits and more, and is the ultimate collection -- at least until a complete-recordings box set appears.
