The Bashful Blond/Let Me Belong To You by Brian Hyland (1961 / 1962)
Originally released in 1961 and 1962 on the London and HMV record labels, and now available for the first time as a 2 on 1 CD Initially aiming his output at teens, Brian Hyland grew up fast and cut a serious cover of 'Gypsy Woman', a hit by The Impressions that went gold in 1970. The Queens, NY, native enjoyed his biggest hit at the tender age of 16 with the tongue-twisting 'Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini', a cute ditty snapped up by Kapp Records after it was issued on the little Leader label.

Hyland moved to ABC-Paramount and already sounded more adult by the time 'Sealed With A Kiss' hit in 1962. A string of solid sellers, including 'The Joker Went Wild' in 1966, preceded his remake of 'Gypsy Woman', produced by Del Shannon and released on MCA This compilation is put together with full support and help from Brian himself
