The Touch Of Betty Johnson

The Touch
The Touch Of Betty Johnson
Bally BAL 12011

From Billboard - December 22, 1956: The creamy-voiced canary has a hot single, "I Dreamed," on the jockey charts right now, so her first Bally LP should get heavy play from the spinner-set.

From the back cover: Betty started singing with her family in Possum Walk Road, North Carolina, at the age of five. The Johnson Family sang at funerals, weddings, jamborees and fish frys. In the twenty years since her debut at five, Betty has made her way along the hard trail of one-nighters, club dates and night clubs, up to and including the Copacabana in New York, to network radio and television, and a string of successful records. Betty recently made her singing-acting debut on television in a featured part on the NBC-TV daytime serial, "Modern Romances."
