Product Description

Allan Clarke, of course, made his name as lead singer with The Hollies, Manchesters answer to The Beatles, who enjoyed huge success across the 60's and early 70's. In 1972, he embarked on a solo career on Epic Records with his debut album My Real Name Is Arold (a reference to his true Christian name, Allan being his middle name). The following years, he moved to EMI and stayed for four years and three albums, which have been out-of-print on CD for some time. Headroom, the first of Allans EMI albums, sported a Magritte-styled cover and opened with Complete Controllable Man. Clarke produced the album himself, sang and played guitar, with help from guitarist Ray Glynn and keyboard player Kirk Duncan (both ex-The Mirage and Jawbone), Elton Johns bassist Dee Murray and legendary session drummer Tony Newman. It spawned the single Who?. After a non-album single, a cover version of Bruce Springsteen's Born To Run in 1975, Allan returned with his third and final EMI album, Ive Got Time, in 1976. It opened with another Springsteen song, Blinded By The Light " indeed, the LP consisted entirely of cover versions. Living In Love (originally by The Sutherland Brothers) was chosen as a 7."

It took two weeks from the U.S. release date until "Sideshow: Solo Recordings 1973-1976" arrived in my mailbox, but it was worth every minute of the wait. This 2-CD compilation set not only showcases Allan's distinctive vocal talent but his amazing gift for songwriting as well. It also includes his unique interpretations on several cover versions including a highly charged, and incredibly energetic, version of "Blinded by the Light" by Bruce Springsteen, and, in my opinion, a much clearer rendition of Springsteen's "Born to Run" than "The Boss" recorded.

This is a composite of his solo CD s which have been long deleted. The voice is superb as lead singer of the Hollies a group I love he lead for 40 years until his voice began to desert him. The choice of music is so different to the Hollies but they are very good Pop songs. Give it a listen you will not be disappointed.

Bought this to replace long time lost vinyls. I thought it would have stood the test of time but unfortunately not. He was the first artist to cover Bruce Springsteen but they don't live up to the originals. The 'I've got time' is definitely the best out of the three albums here but all 3 sound a little bit dated.
