This essential edition contains Cliff Richard's celebrated self-titled debut LP, Cliff, which
was originally issued by Columbia Records in April 1959 (it reached #4 on the UK Album
Chart), and has been long unavailable on vinyl. The set was recorded live at Abbey
Road studios in front of an invited audience of his fast growing admirers.
The 16 high-energy tracks are a representation both of the star's own early repertoire,
and the staples of any aspiring rock & roll band of the era - a piece of Elvis, a bit of
Buddy Holly, a lump of Jerry Lee Lewis. This wild young iconoclast's debut album
retains every ounce of that power. Backed by The Shadows (at a time when they were
still called The Drifters - later they changed their name to avoid a conflict with the
homonymous American R&B group), it is a magnificent portrait of the team's capabilities.
In addition to the original album, this limited collector's edition includes 2 bonus tracks
from the same period: 'Dynamite' and Carl Perkins' 'Pointed Toe Shoes.' This is some
of the best material of Cliff Richard's discography - primal British beat from the man
who all but invented it.
