Biography

The life of James Marcus Smith began on November 6th 1938 at Herman Hospital in Houston, Texas (USA).

As a young boy, Jim, like many others was influenced by black Negro musicians and their music. In spite of the racism that ruled heavily in the Southern States, he listened to all the Baptist Gospel singers around his area on Sundays and sang along with them. In those days nearly ...

Product Description

For more than 50 years, P.J. Proby has entertained a generation with his trademark power ballads and sold-out performances throughout the world. The outpouring of affection though for the Rock legend has never been greater and to celebrate his 75th birthday (November 2013) he releases this stunning album of recently recorded updates of some of his best loved hits and fan favourites alongside an assortment of new interpretations of Rock 'n' Roll classics which Proby hand-picked especially for the project. All 19 recordings showcase Proby's continued vocal versatility. ** "Enigma: a person that is mysterious and puzzling....P.J. Proby is not a person to be understood or figured out he's only meant to be listened to..." **

This legend may have had his ups and downs over the years but one thing remains constant and that is his legendary voice which on this new CD album sounds sensational!

I'm a fan of Proby's 1960s power ballads and vocal prowess and would be the first to recommend Best Of The EMI Years (1961-1972) which contains all the essentials from the early part of his career. What is fantastic though about this latest release (which celebrates Proby's milestone birthday) is he returns to the same great music which cemented his career some 50 years ago!! Many wonderful new versions of his biggest hits feature plus some really stellar new takes on Rock 'n' Roll gems which Proby so clearly enjoys singing!

The electric guitarist who is credited on this album is Rockin' Roland Jones and he is superb as are the other musicians. Highlights for me on the 2013 release are "Three Steps To Heaven" (Eddie Cochran), "Don't Leave Me Now" (Elvis Presley), "If I Can Dream" (Elvis Presley) and super rock revamps of Proby's hits "Hold Me" and "Together". This album is definitely one of his best produced in recent years so here's hoping we get many more of this standard!

Seriously guys and gals, you've gotta love this guy as he is one of very few TRUE LEGENDS who continues to tour and entertain this nation - here's wishing him many more "happy birthdays" to come!

Just received the cd in the post and its on it's 3rd play, this is the best new cd from P.J for a long time. For once he seems to be singing with enjoyment and also has a backing band that can play and be with him.

For myself like his reworking off his old hits good to hear him do "Together" again cannot faultany tracks and hope and look forward to volume 2. Keep going Jim and look forward to seeing live again soon.
