'Walkin' Back To Happiness' with Peter Williams. Hello Everybody, and welcome to my 14th CD. This album Is a collection of some of my favourite tracks from the 50s & 60s. There are some that are very special to me. Back in the 80s, I was privileged to meet Connie Francis. What a wonderful voice she has, and I have recorded my version of her song 'My Happiness' for this CD. There is a strong Liverpool connection for this album as Billy Fury, our first rock star would have been 70 last April, and I was honoured to be asked by Chris Eley from Billy's fan club, to record 'I'm Lost Without You' for a very special memorial service at Mill Hill, so that the fans that were gathered there could sing along to my version of his great song. I was also pleased to be back in touch with Charlie Gallagher, drummer from 'The Cryin' Shames', and I have recorded 'Please Stay' as a tribute to him. Remembering the days when we used to go to The Cavern Club, I just had to do 'How Do You Do It' from Gerry & The Pacemakers and another favourite of mine, Billy J Kramer's 'Bad To Me'. I have always been a Cliff Richard fan, so there is no surprise that I have 4 of his songs on this album, 'The Young Ones', 'Constantly','Travelin' Light' and 'The Minute You're Gone'.
There had to be an Elvis of course, and I have chosen 'Never Ending'. I have included 'You're My World' from Cilia Black, but I always thought that this would have been a wonderful song for Elvis to have done. Other favourites on this CD are Buddy Holly's 'Heartbeat' and 'Everyday', Gene Vincent's 'Say Mama' - a real foot tapper, 'A Teenager In Love' recorded by Craig Douglas and Marty Wilde, and not forgetting Eden Kane's 'Well I Ask You'. There are 29 tracks on this CD, which is as about as many I can fit on it. I just want to keep on recording these fabulous songs until I am told to stop - the CD is full! I do want to mention one of the two bonus tracks I have added to this album. I always loved the wonderful R.E.M. song - 'Everybody Hurts', so I have included it on this CD as a bonus track for you. It is such a beautiful piece of music. I hope you enjoy this album, and I hope to be able to record many more of the great songs from the 50s & 60s. I would now like to thank Doug Abbott for designing the cover of this album. These are American singles from his collection in case you didn't recognise the labels.
