Cliff Richard & The Shadows - Summer Holiday [Mono 1963]


* April 2014 Remaster *
1963 - Mono - EMI - 33SX 1472
Cliff does not get the acclaim he deserves. This might be my most listened to LP of the last year. Breezy with a terrific energy and amazing songs, coupled with a virtuoso backing of The Shadows, Norrie Paramore's production and the Mike Sammes Singers. What more could you ask for? The soundtrack to English Sixties just before Beatle Mania. Available here in MONO which has, to my knowledge, never been released on CD. Let me know what you think!

Bob Crewe - Street Talk (1976)


* new remaster April 2014 *

1976 - Elektra - 7E-1083
So underrated! Bob Crewe, pioneer of The Four Seasons and brilliant composer of the Barbarella soundtrack releases another long player here. Street Talk is a fabulous mix of disco, pop and ooh la la and I ordered it to make up the shipping in an ebay purchase; little did I know it would turn out to be one of my most cherished LPs. Again, unavailable on CD! Enjoy Vinyl Shipwreckers!
