Only the Best: Tommy Steele

Öffnen Sie iTunes, um Hörproben zu wählen und Musik zu kaufen und zu laden.


This 20-song collection has been superseded by The World of Tommy Steele, but as there's only a variation of three tracks between them (none of them major hits), there's hardly a difference between the two, so anyone who bought this CD can stick with it, rather than upgrading, unless owning "Flash, Bang, Wallop," "It's All Happening." and "Hit Record" is significantly more important to one than having "Must Be Santa" and "Sweet Georgia Brown." The sound is excellent — Steele's tape library has been well taken care of across the decades — and the material is well-transferred. As to the actual music, Steele's work will seem strange to American ears — he wasn't really doing rock & roll, but he had just entered his twenties when he hit and he had an energetic delivery, and when given a song like "Singing the Blues" or "Rock with the Caveman," which had some youth appeal, he could deliver a performance that sounded like a very tame approximation of rock & roll.

His voice is pleasing in a slightly bland way, by modern (i.e. late 20th century/early 21st century) standards, and he did have some solid backing, from the Steel Men and, in two instances, Roland Shaw and His Orchestra.

Some 43 years after he first charted a record, many pop music scholars still question whether Tommy Steele belongs on a list of rock & roll performers. But whatever he was, in 1956, England had never seen anything quite like him. He was born Tommy Hicks on December 17, 1936, in Bermondsey, South London, to a...
