  • The following is from the 1961 Liberty biog for Johnny Burnette: 'In July 1960, with 14 violins instead of his guitars backing him, Johnny recorded an item called 'Dreamin'. He didn't have to, any longer, for the record did what all the others had failed to do - it became a bonafide hit. Then, as always seems to happen, the hits came with joyous consistency 'You're Sixteen', 'Little Boy Sad', 'Big Big World', 'Girls' etc etc.'
