Description

Perhaps the most successful British artist to never have a #1 record (his biggest hit, "Jealousy", stalled at #2), Billy Fury was one of the biggest home-grown Pop Stars of the pre-Beatles era. This unique compilation presents the A's and B-sides of Billy's first sixteen singles, plus a bonus track, "Fury's Tune", from his first LP, on which he namechecks six of his early 45's.

Although several of his early hits were self-penned rockers - e.g. "Maybe Tomorrow", "Margo (Don't Go)", "Collette", "That's Love" - his record label, Decca, successfully converted him into a purveyor of string-driven beat ballads, e.g. "Wondrous Place", "A Thousand Stars", "Halfway to Paradise", "I'd Never Find Another You", "Last Night Was Made for Love", "Once Upon a Dream".

This set presents a truly phenomenal body of work and serves to confirm that Fury's B-sides were very often as strong as their topsides. Although Bill died in 1983 his popularity remains as high as ever - indeed, there are currently three different 'Tribute' acts touring the UK, each doing good business.
