Betty Johnson started out singing with her family in the Johnson Family Singers. Then she went solo in the 50's. I wrote Jasmine Records a couple of years ago about putting a collection together of her. I'm glad they listened later. I discovered her when I found The Touch album in a thrift store. It didn't have her picture on the front but I decided to take a risk. She has a pretty voice. She mostly did novelties. However she did one album The Song you heard when you fell in love that's standards. It's on this collection as well. There were too many vocalists in the 50's. That's why Betty is not really heard of. But she knew how to sing.
