While this is the era of American Graffiti, of surf boards and hot rods, the Brits are not ignored. Top of the pops is “Britain’s answer to Elvis”, the remarkable Cliff Richard, still going strong after 60 years of hit-making. His first hit was what many claim was the UKs first rock & roll original, Move It. A few years later, Cliff hit big with the theme from the first film to have his name above the title, The Young Ones.Cliff had strong competition back then – Adam Faith was a real favourite, his plaintive vocal style found real favour in the charts with What Do You Want… and Poor Me.  Many still think Frank Ifield was Australian, but he was born in Coventry, before the family emigrated. Frank enjoyed a unique chart statistic when he became the first British act to have three consecutive No.1 singles on the UK charts – I Remember You was the first of the trio. Billy Fury still occupies a place on record-buyers hearts, the shy Liverpudlian managed to convey a plaintive appeal on his big hits to be found here – Wondrous Place, Halfway To Paradise and Last Night Was Made For Love. And if that wasn’t enough, just turn to hi-fi high and enjoy other fabulous music from the era – Bryan Hyland’s Sealed With A Kiss…  Jerry Keller’s Here Comes Summer…  Neil Sedaka’s Oh Carol… Ritchie Valens’ Donna… Chris Montez’s Let’s Dance… All evoke that time of pop’s lost age of innocence… Of drive-in movies, soda fountains and the Presidency of John F. Kennedy. Gone now, but remembered in this fabulous collection of songs by timeless Teen Idols.
