At least at the beginning, Fabian was the most reluctant teen idol in America. Bob Marcucci, boss of Chancellor
Records, discovered 14-year-old Fabiano Forte on his front stoop in Philadelphia, worried sick about his father, who had
just been hauled away in an ambulance. After some serious effort, Marcucci finally convinced the lad to try his hand at
recording rock and roll. The pleasing results are on this jam-packed collection. At first, Fabian was a work in progress
behind the mic, but it didn’t take him long to start scoring smashes for Chancellor. I’m A Man, the Doc Pomus/Mort
Shuman-penned Turn Me Loose, Tiger, Hound Dog Man – Fabian nailed one hit after another in 1959, and millions of
girls squealed their approval. This comp isn’t limited to Fabian’s mammoth hits; he did some of his best rocking on his
Chancellor albums, and there are plenty of eye-openers here from those sets as well. Break Down And Cry, his lone ’62
single for Dot Records, is aboard too, produced by label boss Randy Wood and Pat Boone. Fabian’s rock and roll career
was short but sweet; Bear Family’s deep dive into his surprisingly rich catalog is sure to please!
