Wooden Heart was one of the biggest hits of 1961 and the beginning of Dowell's two-year stint at Smash, a then-new subsidiary of Mercury Records. Dowell's Smash recordings encompassed a variety of styles -- rock 'n' roll, teen idol pop, traditional pop -- as Dowell struggled to assert himself as a serious vocalist and songwriter while his label made him cut a series of teen-oriented novelties. Dowell likened artistic process at Smash to an assembly line, but his tenure with the label yielded several chart hits, two albums, and some fun novelty music he performed well even when it was not to his liking.
