This 3 CD set released by EMI to coincide with Cliff’s 75th Birthday tour. As the title says, this set contains 75 tracks covering Cliff’s career. Yes, it’s another ‘best of’ but this set contains 4 of Cliff’s rarer tracks “Golden” “21st Century Christmas”, a remake of “Move It”, and “Thank You For A Lifetime”. Celebrating his 56th anniversary in the music business this year, Cliff Richard is indisputably Britain’s all-time greatest hit-maker the ultimate pop star! No other UK band or solo artist is even close to equalling his 100 album releases, 123 single hits, or can claim to have occupied a place in our charts for the equivalent of over 20 years.
Cliff//Cliff Sings is a fine twofer CD from Cliff Richard with a whopping thirty-two songs recorded when Cliff was rather young. His voice still remains one of the best kept British secrets ever in the world of entertainment; but maybe with albums like this one that will change…
2010 reissue of this collection from the British Pop superstar. The Early Years features many alternative takes of his work with The Shadows and The Drifters.
In the years after Elvis Presley but before the Beatles, Cliff Richard was the biggest thing in British rock & roll and in the years after the Beatles, he was never far from the top of the U.K. charts. Arriving in 1958, just a couple of years after skiffle swept across Britain, Richard was the first English singer to approximate the hip-shaking rebellion of American rock & roll with his 1958 debut single "Move It." A smash hit right out of the gate, "Move It" kicked off an astonishing five decades' worth of hits (his last time in the U.K. Top 10 was, as of this writing, in 2008, when "Thank You for a Lifetime" went to three).
Wanda Jackson was the first female rock and roll singer in the United States, releasing her debut record in 1956. She is often hailed as the "Queen Of Rockabilly." Inducted into Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 2009 (Early Influence)…

If Rhino's Very Best of the Drifters is a fine R&B snack, then All-Time Greatest Hits & More: 1959-1965 is a three-course gourmet meal with dessert built on the same ingredients. Forget about the higher price and the fact that 40 songs might seem to be more Drifters than most casual listeners would want – All-Time Greatest Hits & More: 1959-1965 is a towering and magnificent collection of some of the best popular R&B ever done this side of Sam Cooke. And, as with Sam Cooke, the beautiful part of the Drifters' work during this period is that any look beyond and behind their hits reveals a lot more songs that were every bit as good as those hits. There's not even a slightly weak track anywhere on All-Time Greatest Hits & More, which contains the biggest hits Ben E. King, Rudy Lewis, and Johnny Moore sang for the group. "There Goes My Baby," "This Magic Moment," "Save the Last Dance for Me," "Sweets for My Sweet," "I Count the Tears," "Some Kind of Wonderful," "Up on the Roof," "On Broadway," and "Under the Boardwalk" are all here, mastered in surprisingly good sound for the late '80s.
