The Best Of Johnny Maestro: 1958-1985
The story of Johnny Maestro is one that spans virtually the entire rock era. He began his musical career in the '50s with The Crests, whose #2 hit, "16 Candles," is a staple of Oldies radio. After more hits, Johnny went solo in 1962 with moderate success, until the late '60s, when he formed a large vocal touring group. When an associate commented, "It's gonna be easier to sell the Brooklyn Bridge than sell a group of this size," Johnny's new outfit had a name. In 1968, their version of Jimmy Webb's "The Worst That Could Happen" went to #3 on the charts and led to countless concert and television appearances. By 1972 The Brooklyn Bridge had sold over ten million records and they have soldiered on ever since. Covering his work with The Crests and The Brooklyn Bridge, plus his solo material, The Best of Johnny Maestro: 1958-1985 brings all the highlights of Johnny's illustrious career together in a single package.
