    CHARLIE DRAKE: 'Splish Splash' (1958).

    Anyone else been doing any plumbing jobs today? I was, and for some reason while I was fiddling round in the confines of a washbasin unit I thought of this song...This version was a bigger hit in the UK than Bobby Darin's, and the comic actor Drake plays the comic-novelty aspect...

    Can't Get Enough!

    I'm an avid vintage lover with a particular LOVE for 50's. Everything about the era is just captivating! I listen to many 50's artists and believe the decade played hosts to some of the most iconic, influential artists I believe the world will come to know. Although I am only...

    SHIRLEY BASSEY: 'As I Love You' (1958) Before

    the Bond songs and the string of hits reaching into the Seventies, there was this: a real showcase for that lovely powerful voice. Shirley Bassey had a talent for making songs 'her own' and this was no exception. I love the intensity of that final flourish...'More...and more...

    DON HENLEY - 'Boys of Summer' (1984) (YT clip

    here) Terrific atmospheric track from 'Eagle' Don Henley. You can almost feel the late summer with the deserted beach and the seagull cries. There's some great guitar. There's that 'lived-in' voice and a fine set of words - not only about a love affair that's eating him up but...

    RAY MARTIN & HIS CONCERT ORCHESTRA: 'Blue

    Tango' (1952). My parents were married in 1952, and for their Golden Wedding party in 2002 I put together an 'atmospheric' soundtrack tape. This was one of the records I found to go on it. I never knew the world as it was when my parents were young, but I have a feeling that...

    THE CASTELLS: 'Sacred' (1961).

    I posted the slightly later (1962) Castells hit 'So This Is Love' the other day, but this one of theirs is just as sweet....and this comes with an equally pretty audiovisual...

    I grew up on hip hop

    so that's what I know best. Anything from Grandmaster Flash to Cannibal OX. Recently for the past year I've been trying to broaden my music by exploring new genres. I absolutely fell in love with folk music, Bob Dylan has became one of my heroes. Also really got into old soul...

    My particular favourites are the Beatles

    and the Bee Gees early hits from the 60s and 70s. Music seemed so much better in that era than what it does now

    GUY MITCHELL: 'Look At That Girl' (1953).

    I promised someone I hold dear that I'd post this so here goes...I didn't know this record until a few years ago. I read about it on a UK blog run by one Tom Ewing and he stopped short of enthusiasm. So when a copy turned up in the local 'shellac mine' (asking price fifty pence...

    LEO LEANDROS: Alle Maedchen wollen kuessen

    (1959): It's a bit of of a curio this one ...Rock'n'Roll in German (!) Alle Maedchen wollen kuessen (all girls want to kiss) from Leo Leandros...yes that's Vicky's dad. Covered in the UK by Lance Fortune as 'Be Mine' the following year with a pizzicato-strings arrangement rather...

    BILLY FURY - 'Halfway to Paradise' (1961) (YT

    clip here) A Goffin & King song, and a minor hit for Tony Orlando in the US. Covered in the UK by Billy Fury, a young rocker from Liverpool who moved into ballads at the turn of the 60s. Great arrangement (Ivor Raymonde), heartfelt delivery...and a No. 3 hit. Full of emotion and...

    BILLY FURY: 'That's Love' (from the LP 'The

    Sound of Fury', 1960). The closest anyone this side of the Atlantic got to the 'Sun Sessions' sound. Impresario Jack Good handled production, and on guitar was a young Joe Brown. Meanwhile, Fury was the most convincing of the first generation of 'rock' singers in the UK. 'The...
