Sir Cliff Richard is in to his 60th year in pop music and he has a new collection.
‘Stronger Thru The Years’ contains 38 classic songs, of which no fewer than 10 were No.1 hit singles. These include ‘Living Doll’ (1959), ‘Travellin’ Light’ (1959), ‘Please Don’t Tease’ (1960). ‘I Love You’ (Christmas No.1 in 1960), ‘The Young Ones’ (1962), ‘Don’t Talk To Him’ (1963), ‘The Minute You’re Gone’ (1965) and ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’ (1979).
‘The Next Time’ and ‘Summer Holiday’ were both UK No.1 hits from the Summer Holiday Movie, the latter song taking a mere 20 mins to write! The story goes that guitarist Bruce Welch OBE and drummer Brian Bennett OBE scribbled down the lyrics and came up with the tune during a rehearsal for a pantomime at the Globe Theatre in Stockton On Tees in 1963! A Blue Plaque now marks the spot…
In addition to classic Cliff solo and Shadows hits, there are three powerful duets: ‘She Means Nothing To Me’, sung with the late, great Phil Everly, was released in 1983; ‘Suddenly’, with Olivia Newton John, became a top 20 hit on both sides of the Atlantic in 1980; and ‘All I Ask Of You’, the classic Phantom of the Opera song, was a sparkling duet with Sarah Brightman, recorded in 1986.
Next year Cliff will be on the road again, celebrating his 60th year in music. Starting on 27th September at Killarney INEC, the 58-18=60th Anniversary Tour will take in eighteen shows across the UK, Ireland and Denmark.
