From rockin' teenager to accomplished all-round entertainer, Tommy Steele has done it all in a career that now spans sixty years (and counting!) Tommy was the UK's first bona fide rock 'n' roll act and the first young person to play the music that enchanted his generation. Although he quickly gravitated to becoming more of a family favourite, it's his early records that provided the impetus for so many more local kids to emulate him. "British Steele" is a comprehensive chronicle of Tommy's first six years as a recording artist. It contains the A and B sides of all of his singles from 'Rock With The Caveman' to the end of 1962, plus a selection of bonus tracks culled from his EPs of the period. All of Tommy's biggest and best known songs of the 50s and early 60s are here, including Top 10 hits that range from 'A Handful Of Songs' and the chart-topping 'Singing The Blues' to comedy favourites like 'What A Mouth' and 'Little White Bull'. Also included, for the first time on CD, is Tommy's spoken word entry in 'Weekend' magazine's 'The Truth About Me' series. Beautifully remastered from the best available sources, and featuring as much music as could be crammed onto two CDs. Copiously annotated booklet gives much detail about the man and his music. Although it's not the first time that this beloved entertainer's music has been anthologised in the CD era, it's the first time that any digital reissue has put Tommy Steele's incredible early career into such a depth of historical perspective.
