Dodie Stevens shot to fame as a 13-year-old when she was given a chance to record, having been spotted in a local show, and had a US pop No. 3 with “Pink Shoelaces” in 1959. It launched her on a brisk chart career which lasted a year or two, returning to the business in the late ‘60s and ‘70s after raising a family. She was a fascinating example of that strand of young artists who had chart success in the teen pop style, but whose underlying musical influences were those of a former era, a feature which emerged in her albums. This 52-track 2-CD collection comprises the A & B sides of her singles in the Crystalette and Dot labels from this era, plus the titles from her Dot albums “Dodie Stevens”, “Over the Rainbow” and “Pink Shoelaces” not otherwise released on singles. It features her US No. 3 hit “Pink Shoelaces” and her other career hits “Yes Sir-Ee”, “Five Pennies”, “Miss Lonely Hearts”, “No” and “Yes, I’m Lonesome Tonight”. It’s a comprehensive overview of the first and most significant era of her career, and  is an entertaining showcase for a talented young performer who belied her youth, and successfully projected herself as being way beyond her years.
