Laine’s Columbia career saw him move toward husky country western pop with arrangements and orchestra conduction by Mitch Miller, the vocal pop impresario who produced some of the most schmaltzy pop music of the 1950s (and recorded it as well, in a series of Sing Along with Mitch Miller LPs). Laine succumbed to Miller’s machinations soon enough, and even though his debut Columbia single, “Jezebel”/”Rose, Rose, I Love You,” was a double sided Top Five hit, he never again reached number one in America.
