Ray Griff was a singer and songwriter who was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, and went on to become a star on the country charts in both the United States and his homeland. Griff was a frequent presence on the Canadian sales reports from 1965 to 1990, and landed seven singles on the American country Top 40. Griff's strong, emotionally powerful performances and warmly sentimental songs won him a loyal following, and his songs were recorded by Jerry Lee Lewis, Faron Young, Dolly Parton, Porter Wagoner, Johnny Duncan, and other C&W legends. The Entertainer: Greatest U.S. & Canadian Hits is an album that collects 24 songs representing Ray Griff's biggest hits on both sides of the border, and captures his big-hearted, crowd-pleasing style at his peak. Selections include "The Mornin' After Baby Let Me Down," "If I Let Her Come In," "You Ring My Bell," "The Entertainer," "That Doesn't Mean (I Don't Love My God)," "What Got to You (Before It Got to Me)," and 18 more.
