Born Adrian Hill, Ronnie Hilton was a popular British singer in the fifties and sixties. His stock-in-trade was the romantic ballad and most of his big hits came before rock'n'roll took over the pop charts.
Like other British singers of the time, he relied heavily on American songs for his repertoire, scoring in his only UK number one with a Perry Como cover, No other love, in 1956. When Ronnie tried another Perry Como cover two years later (Magic moments), he was much less successful because the British public made Perry's version a number one hit. Apart from No other love, Ronnie had UK top ten hits with between 1954 and 1957 with I still believe, A blossom fell, Who are we and Around the world.
Perhaps the best song that Ronnie recorded was The wonder of you, a cover of a Ray Peterson song. Both Ronnie's and Ray's versions stalled just outside the UK top twenty in 1959, probably because people were more interested in rock'n'roll. It is therefore somewhat ironic that Elvis Presley, of all people, made this song his own in the summer of 1970, taking it to the top of the charts around the world.
Ronnie had eighteen UK hits altogether, all of them included here. If you enjoy romantic ballads, fifties style, you will surely enjoy Ronnie's music.

Ditto our Lancashire friend's comments. What a powerful and pleasant voice Ronnie had. He was right up there with the best of them ... Perry Como, Vic Damone, Frankie Laine and all those big voices from the 50s. This CD is one of the best buys around with 25 great tracks at a terrific price. Get it while it's still in circulation.

Ronnie Hilton was as big a star in the 1950`s as Justin Beiber is today. He was a British artist constantly heard on the radio, when the airwaves were dominated by American artists, such as Tony Bennett, Dean Martin and Perry Como. Many of his recordings were covers of other artists material, but he made them his own. His biggest hit was perhaps "No Other Love", a dramatic ballad written by Richard Rogers and Oscar Hammerstein, yet he also succeeded with "A Windmill In Old Amsterdam", an amusing song popular then and today with the younger generation. One of our great balladeers, lost to the changes in music during the 1960`s.

Being a lancastarian its hard for me to admit the best singer this countries produced is a yorkshireman, followed by a taff (Malcolm Vaughan) but this cd shows how great Ron Hilton is, now sadly i hear he is ill but just listening to these classics would bring a smile to his face i am sure. Great Cd One of the best.

I used to like Ronnie Hilton's Radio 2 show on Saturdays, years ago. This great CD brought it all back to me. He was a great all-round entertainer with a distinctively warm manner and good singing voice. Top value.

It was lovely to go back in time and sing along to the wonderful Ronnie Hilton. I used to enjoy listening to him on the radio and he is sadly missed.
