AllMusic Review by

Collectables' Here & Now is a good budget-priced ten-track collection combining Johnnie Ray's romantic ballads and uptempo pop numbers recorded for Columbia in the '50s. These are the original versions of such modest hits as "You Don't Owe Me a Thing," "Alexander's Ragtime Band," "Let's Walk That-A-Way" (a duet with Doris Day), and the 1951 chart-topper "The Little White Cloud That Cried." While this is a decent compilation, the essential tracks "Cry" and "Just Walkin' in the Rain" are unfortunately missing.
