Leroy Van Dyke




Discography - Best-Ofs

Leroy Van Dyke "The Auctioneer" (Bear Family, 1994)
Pop-country smoothie Leroy Van Dyke hit the big time in 1956 on Dot Records with his tongue-twisting novelty hit, "The Auctioneer," which he recorded many times afterwards for various labels. That original is included here, along with over a dozen other Dot recordings, material which is almost dominated by perky faux-rockabilly pop tunes (including pepped up, smoothed-out covers of hard country classics like Mel Tillis's "Honky Tonk Song" and Hank Snow's "I'm Moving On"). The palpable attempt at coopting the teen rock fad is a little silly -- Van Dyke had more vigor than Pat Boone but less soul than Marty Robbins, and most of these tracks are pretty disposable... And yet, fun in a way. This 15-song CD follows the original Ace Records LP pretty closely, but tosses in several more songs, just for good measure. It's worth checking out, although it sure would be swell if someone could come up with a best-of package that would include his later Mercury sides as well.


Leroy Van Dyke "Walk On By" (Bear Family, 1994)
A nice follow-up to the Auctioneer collection above... This 30-song CD covers Van Dyke's Mercury years and has a slew of his '60s hits, which is just perfecto for fans of his classic records.


Leroy Van Dyke "Walk On By" (Mercury-Nashville, 1995)
A relatively demure offering from Mercury proper. Still, if you're looking for hits, this disc has got 'em!


Leroy Van Dyke "Golden Hits" (Sun, 1973)
Re-recordings of old hits, re-cut in the 1970s for the semi-revtalized Sun label...
