The year was 1957. In September, a 13-year-old English boy named Laurie London entered London's famous Abbey Road Studios to record a song which like Sputnik, launched by Russia the following month, reverberated around the world. A few months later that song, He's Got The Whole World In His Hands, had sold more than a million copies, topping the American charts along the way.

With a powerful and naturally musical voice, the young Laurie London went on to record nearly 30 songs for the Parlophone label over a period of several years. This overdue tribute from Bear Family makes available for the first time all of Laurie London's U. K. recordings, and chronicles in detail the extraordinary events which happened in 1957/8 and made Laurie London a household name.
