Product Description

Product Description

In the world of popular music, Terence Perkins is a classic rags to riches story. Terence was working as a milkman on the Isle of Wight, his birthplace, when he entered and won a local talent contest. The prize was an appearance on the television show '6.5 Special' and the resulting exposure earned him a recording contract with Decca, where he was billed as Craig Douglas. After two singles with Decca, neither of which made the charts, Craig signed for Top Rank and, by carefully selecting covers of American repertoire, soon hit the charts. He topped the charts with 'Only Sixteen' when the original by Sam Cooke barely made #23 and recorded eight Top 50 hits in a little over two years with Top Rank. Further hits were secured on Columbia and a return to Decca, and he later recorded for Pye and Fontana. Whilst his chart career may have ended in 1963 with the advent of the Merseybeat boom, his long term career was assured and Craig continues to tour the nostalgia curcuit to this day. This album features re-recordings of all of Craig's hits, including both versions of 'A Hundred Pounds Of Clay'.

I can only echo fellow reviewer 'Mike the Busman',in stating this CD is a major disapointment,in as much as the tracks are all re-recordings.In fairness,it has to be said Craig's voice has stood the test of time well,but without the Harry Robinson backings that were a feature of many of his hits,they fall well short of the originals.Better to pay a bit more for the EMI recordings,and being sure of what you're getting.All CD's should clearly state if recordings are originals or otherwise.

If you, like me, are stuck in a time warp, and like your music to have lyrics you can understand clearly, and a tune you can sing along to, then you will enjoy listening to some well remembered songs and some not quite so well remembered, but very enjoyable, all the same. Although craig douglas was not the icon, presley was, he made his mark on the music world in the late 50's and early 60's, so much so that the bbc banned the first version of 100lbs of clay. this cd contains both the original and amended versions. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Beware this product if you are after a genuine compilation of original Craig Douglas hits, because this isn't it. Instead, it is a collection of re-recordings which all lack the freshness and distinctiveness of the original 1950s and 1960s recordings. What's more, it appears that in the intervening forty years or so, Mr Douglas (or Mr Perkins to be exact!) has forgotten some of the lyrics of his hits.

Apart from the hits, the disc contains some versions of standards given the Craig Douglas treatment. Inexplicably, Buddy Holly's great number "Everyday", the flip of "Peggy Sue", has its composer described as "unknown". It was of course Buddy himself with alleged input from producer Norman Petty.

If you have recently seen Craig Douglas performing live, this disc would be a good souvenir of the event, but as a record (sorry about the pun) of his great days, it falls flat. If I had known it was not original tracks I would not have bought it.

Craig was popular during my student years in the U.K.,so I bought this fornostalgic reasons. However, in truth I'd forgotten just what a good singerhe was ! Funny business Show Business,that a fellow with his talent shouldfade into relative obscurity ! Still, here's a chance to relive goodmemories, good songs and good singing...treat yourselves !

This CD contains re-recordings of Craig's best known songs - plus, if you look way down the track list, a few newer ones. In a previous version of this review I said it was a rip-off but, as a kindly person pointed out, it DOES actually say in Amazon's blurb that these are re-recordings, so I should have been more careful. Quite right, point taken.

I do still wonder why the picture on the front cover is Craig Douglas "then" and not "now" though. Well, actually no, I don't wonder.....

The See For Miles release, as illustrated, IS NOT re-recordings. The CD contains 20 tracks which were originally released on the Top Rank label. Some reviewers must be mixing this CD up with another issue which has the same title.

I bought this CD (not on Amazon). While waiting on the CD to arrive, I decided to take a look on Amazon to see what the reviews said about this collection. I was disappointed after reading some, as they declared the tracks on this disc are not the original recordings.

On reading this I was almost going to cancel the order, and request a refund. However as I hadn't paid a lot of money for it I decided not to.

How thankful I am now that I didn't cancel the order. This is a great collection, and they are all the original recordings (I can pick up a re-recording on the very first note). Without any doubt these are the original.

The track "One Hundred pounds Of Clay" you get the original recording and a bonus track of the new recording. There is absolutely nothing to complain about on this disc. All original tracks and great to listen to.

It's worth every penny, and an awful lot more than the small amount I paid. Buy it, and travel back to a time when the world was a more innocent place. It is a brilliant CD, and a joy to listen to. Ignore those who claim these are not the original recordings. They are misleading you.

Similar to the 50th anniversary CD, Craig has selected some new songs and some re-recordings of his earlier hits. I particularly like the sound of his voice as much now as on the earlier records. Wonderul songs that were not hits for Craig but still work well in his style are "Joanna" a lovely arrangement and suits his voice as does "both sides now". The big hits are all there too, it is nice to hear some quality well written songs sung by a very talented and professional entertainer. If you want the originals buy the EMI CD then you have the best of both worlds.
