'1962' a momentous year indeed....the year a little known outfit from Liverpool
crept into the Top 20, yes, 'The Beatles' with 'Love me do' after this early
chart entry ? well...the rest as they say is 'History'
included, many hits of the year are on board, though I have to point out there
are a considerable number of 'B-sides' 'l-P' and 'E-P tracks'
it does mean however there are almost certainly a number of collectables that
may well be tracks from your 'vinyl' collection you'd found difficult to find
because of it being perhaps a favourite 'B-side'
on board we have 'Cliff's' double 'A' side release from the film 'Summer Holiday'
'Bachelor Boy' and 'The Next Time'
also on board 'Valerie Mountain's' 'Some People' from the film of the same name
( I believe 'Carol Deene's' version of the same song was the bigger hit ? )
playing this really brings the memories flooding back, numbers from artists such
as 'Aussie' 'Frank Ifield' who taught us all to 'Yodel' ( or not )
because 'Little Eva's' version of 'The Locomotion' was such a massive hit, I for
one had until now forgotten 'The Vernon Girls' cover version (also on board )
great to see hits from artists such as 'Frankie Vaughan' 'Nat King Cole' 'Little
Richard' 'Mark Wynter' 'Duanne Eddy' 'Kenny Lynch' 'Mike Sarne' (who became 'Alvin
Stardust' in the 70's ) to mention just a few along with the usual suspects 'Elvis'
'Joe Brown' 'Roy Orbison' 'Bobby Vee' 'The Everly's' 'Del Shannon' and 'Billy Fury'
again just to highlight one or two.
overall I have to say the compilation is well worth adding to your collection as it
is full of memories of that time.
