AllMusic Review by

An Introduction to Faron Young is a sampling of tracks recorded during the singer's tenure with Capitol Records in the late '50s and early '60s. The majority of these songs appealed to both pop and country audiences, not only achieving wide crossover popularity for Faron Young, but introducing such up-and-coming songwriters of the era as Don Gibson, Kris Kristofferson, and Willie Nelson who penned the number one hit "Hello Walls." The casual listener will be pleased with the choice of material, but the collector who wants more should search for the massive five-disc set The Complete Capitol Hits of Faron Young on Bear Family.
