AllMusic Review by

The EMI Years is a 20-track sampler of English-born Frank Ifield, who became a country superstar in the U.K. and Australia. Ifield had an unusual vocal style which mixed traditional country yodeling with slick pop stylings. These are the original recordings from the mid-'50s to late '60s, including "I Remember You," "The Days of Wine and Roses," "San Antone Rose," and "Stardust." While a few crucial tracks are missing, this remains the most comprehensive title in his catalog.
