One of the more individualistic pop vocalists of the late Fifties and Sixties, Adam Faith (1940-2003) was no rocker but with the initial benefit of John Barry's strings and guitar arrangements plus the songs of Les Vandyke was a regular visitor to the UK Charts with a succession of hits. EMI has gathered them together for this essential chronological compilation and whilst I am sure his number one hits WHAT DO YOU WANT (1959) and POOR ME (1960) and others have been around the reissue block a number of times, they still retain their originality with refreshing edge aided by Adam's distinctive trademark of hiccuping glottal stops and exaggerated pronunciation a requirement of his vocal persona.

The material Adam recorded was generally simple but tuneful and even extended to the seasonal LONELY PUP IN A CHRISTMAS SHOP which remained in the Charts for eleven weeks whilst the double-sided WHEN JOHNNY COMES MARCHING HOME/MADE YOU almost reached the top in 1960. However, as the hits fluttered in the lower reaches of the Top Twenty, Adam moved into films, television drama and stage work including the musical version of BUDGIE (based on his television series) with his photogenic appeal remaining an undimmed attraction.

Here then are all the Top Twenty hits and a few that almost made it so I am sure dedicated fans will grab this collection on sight whilst others will appreciate its availability as a fine way to catch up on one of Britain's early pop idols.

I saw Adam Faith live in the late sixties with his backing group The Roulettes and they were very good,so being around in those exciting times this CD brings back good memories. Considering the age of the music the reproduction is excellent.Would have liked the inclusion of Mix me a Person, but having said that if like me you were there in the 60s or just like the 60s music then you cant go wrong with Adam Faith.All THE HITS

A good reminder of the British pop sceen in the sixites. Adam Faith had a unique voice and this is a good selection of his hits.

I was such an Adam Faith fan as a teenager, my fiend and I used to listen to his records for hours! This CD is great, brings back those teenage years. Pure nostalgia! I just love Who am I? and How about that. You can see me, driving and singing along as I listen to these great songs on my CD player!

I always liked Adam Faith and I was pleased to purchase the album. Some of the tracks did not live up to my memory, but that is my fault not the cd.
