Although chiefly regarded as a 'One-Hit Wonder', ROBIN LUKE's first class recorded legacy belies that notion.

In a brief recording career (he quit singing in 1962), he also enjoyed a number of significant regional successes, most notably on his 'home turf' of Hawaii, where he was established as a major local star.

His signature hit, the gentle, haunting Rockabilly ballad 'Susie Darlin'', has in particular aged well; his very first record, it made the U.S. Top 5, charted internationally, and sold in excess of a million and a half copies.

He also made the U.S. Top 100 with 'My Girl', while releases like 'Chicka Chicka Honey', 'You Can't Stop Me From Dreaming', 'Five Minutes More', a cover of Marty Wilde's U.K. hit 'Bad Boy', 'Everlovin'' and 'All Because Of You' were all regional hits.

All these and more are included on this unique compilation, which anthologises his recording career between 1958-62, and also includes a trio of unfeasibly rare studio outtakes.
