It is said that Dave (real name David Grundy) changed his name because he was a fan of Chuck Berry. Whether this is actually true or not, Dave's first UK hit was with a cover of a Chuck Berry classic, Memphis Tennessee. My baby left me, another cover of an R+B classic, and Baby it's you, a cover of a Shirelles song that Dave may have learned from the Beatles, also made the UK charts.
After three cover hits, Dave finally got an original song, The crying game, which he took into the UK top five. In his homeland, it is the song he is best remembered for. This position was reinforced via a movie of the same title, made in the nineties but featuring Dave's original recording as the title track.
One heart between two (another original song by the writer of The crying game) was only a minor hit. Dave then covered Little things (Bobby Goldsboro) and it became his second UK top five hit. Next came This strange effect, which was written by Ray Davies of the Kinks but not recorded by them. This was only a minor UK hit but topped the charts in Belgium and the Netherlands. His next two singles (I'm gonna take you there, If you wait for love) missed the UK charts but it is likely that they charted in Europe. Dave then returned to the UK top five with another cover, Mama (B J Thomas). This concluded Dave's run of chart success in the UK.
This compilation begin with his eight UK chart hits and ends with twelve of his best other tracks including the two singles that missed the UK charts. If you've heard and enjoyed any of Dave's songs (most likely The crying game) or if you like British pop music of the sixties generally, you should enjoy this collection.

I saw Dave Berry live about twenty years ago and he was still mesmerising his audience with his reserved delivery and hand mimes. Sadly, hand mimes don't translate on to disc, but this is still a good value collection and contains his handful of hits. All but four tracks date to his 1963-66 heyday, after which, like most artists who relied on outside material, he faded from view. Much of the early material consists of r&b standards, which he does well, but he drifted gradually more towards pop, influenced probably by his stellar hit, 'The Crying Game'. 'One Heart Between Two' is an obvious attempt to copy this. Most of the poppier material is meaty, especially Graham Gouldman's 'I'm Gonna Take You There', but his last major hit, 'Mama', and one or two other tracks sound more like the sort of recordings Engelbert Humperdinck was making. There are, however, also some great freaky moments, such as 'This Strange Effect' and 'I Love You Babe', which features some pretty heavy guitar for 1966. Very good value for lovers of 1960s pop.

Fantastic CD brought back wonderful memories of when I saw them live around 1965 - great CD and great price - unfortunately they don't make music like this any more.

Dave Berry had a handful of big hits in the mid-sixties, which really deserve to be much better known today. His was a distinctive style, reserved, gentle vocals with either a guitar or a very sympathetic fuller backing. I bought this for the indescribably charming and moving `Crying Game', one of my all time favourite songs, but found a host of other great tracks here to enjoy.

Opening with a heartfelt rendition of Chuck Berry's Memphis, then proceeding through a set of soulful sweet songs such as `Little Things', the Beatles `Baby It's You' and Cream's `Coffee Song' he makes each song his own. When covering other people's material he manages to find something new and interesting, and often makes the definitive version. And no-one could equal `Crying Game' (or, my newly discovered favourite track, `Little Things').

A great album with some really catchy, heart warming sweet music that was done so well in the mid sixties.

This is one of many Dave Berry CD`s that you can buy with confidence. I bought this some years ago when he came out after a show and it is signed by the great man. There are no bad cd`s from Dave and if you catch him live it is a real treat. Decca have produced a series of all his songs in two parts and the second one is released very soon. If you don`t want all his work go for this excellent effort at a snip of a price. And do catch him live during 2011 on the Solid Silver Sixties tour which begins in February. The most under-rated artist of all time.

The 60s were my era so I tend to love most things from back then. Always liked The Crying Game by Dave Berry and saw him in a 60s show a few years back where he came across as a really nice guy. There are one or two tracks that are something and nothing but in the main this is a good album, if you like the 60s you could do a lot worse.

Berry had an easily identifiable voice. Collection also shows he could cover and better some of the Sixties group's favourite Chuck Berry songs. All his hits are here, of course, but so, too, are his mistakes. Four tracks less and this collection would warrant more stars.
