AllMusic Review by

Spanning the years 1963-1967, You're the Reason is a 30-track anthology of Johnny Tillotson's MGM recordings, including the hit title track and "Talk Back Trembling Lips." Compared to his early Cadence recordings, Tillotson's MGM sides are less rock and more pop, but with just as many de-countrified covers of country hits. You're the Reason in conjunction with Ace's collection of Tillotson's early years, All the Hits -- And More!!!!, provides a thorough -- and thoroughly enjoyable--look at the career of one of the greatest of the teen idols.
