5.0 out of 5 stars Enough covers for a 2nd Volume, 9 Feb. 2013
This review is from: Cliff Heard Them Here First (Audio CD)
The first single EMI selected to start Cliff Richard's career was typical of the mindset at the time-play safe with high school pop.
Jack Good was having none of it as he was no fan of high school so had enough influence as to have it reversed.So Cliff kicked off with a string of original rockers.
Cliff would return to high school from 1959 well into the 60s but a question no interviewer ever asked him was where did some of the American songs come from-how did he find them.
The answer to what is if it wasn't from what he heard on Radio Luxemburg then it was from demos sent to Denmark Street.
Which accounts for songs like D In Love and Apron Strings-a song which has seen many versions but not a hit apart from it being the B side of Living Doll
Cliff was being supplied by American writers Kaye & Springer and Tepper & Bennett who offered him the song The Young Ones which has just been recorded by Pixie Girl CATHY CARROLL but not yet released.By the time the Cliff version was issued in the States the Cathy Carroll one came out and both were reviewed at the same time when the film was retitled It's Great To Be Young
