I have this album under an earlier title from Music for Pleasure, "The Best of Adam Faith", and was surprised that nobody had bothered to review it. Of course, you'd would have had to have been of the late 50's and early 60's young generation to have known Adam and the impact that he had on that early era of UK rock'n roll, along with Cliff Richard and Billy Fury. He wasn't the greatest singer in the world but he had an attraction and personality that appealed to a vast number of fans as well as establishing a niche for catchy and memorable pop songs. This album is a compendium of Adam's most famous songs, some of them were huge selling hits by today's standards, especially the earlier numbers. Adam had a distinctive sound, best reflected by numbers such as "What Do You Want?", "Poor Me" and "Who Am I?", and he also experimented with lovely ballads such as "The Time Has Come" and "Lonesome". With the advent of the Liverpool Sound, he managed to reinvent his style with the Roulettes on "The First Time" and "We Are In Love" before his sound started to lose direction. This is a good sequential record of Adam's significant contribution to UK pop history. There are other tracks, such as some B-sides, that do not appear on this album, which better demonstrate Adam's vocal versatility, but you can't satisfy every fan's preferences.
Nevertheless, this is a great record of a great time in pop evolution.
