Recensione album

This 20-song collection has been superseded by The World of Tommy Steele, but as there's only a variation of three tracks between them (none of them major hits), there's hardly a difference between the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.

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...
