The Very Best Of Acker Bilk (2CD SET)

Artist: Acker Bilk
Format: 2CD
Bar-code: 5060255182857
Cat No: DAY2CD285


‘Acker Bilk was a bowler-hatted Titan of Trad jazz who conjured a warm, sentimental sound from his clarinet.’ So began the Daily Telegraph’s affectionate obituary for Acker Bilk, who died in November 2014, aged 85. It inevitably and correctly identified ‘Stranger On The Shore’, his biggest hit, as ‘among the best-selling records of the 20th century’, but Bilk was much more than a one-hit wonder. Enjoy not only ‘Stranger…’ but many more examples of his mellifluous mastery here.
