Music Millennium

In the era following the rock 'n' roll explosion and before the British Invasion, Pat Boone was second only to Elvis Presley as the USA's most popular and successful male artist, racking up over 50 hits in the half dozen years following his chart debut in 1955. He was a marvellously versatile singer as well as a successful movie actor, equally at home with rock 'n' roll songs and romantic ballads, his warm and relaxed voice giving him an appeal across the pop spectrum, and it enabled him to score several landmark No. 1s in the US and UK with memorable hits like "I'll Be Home", "Love Letters In The Sand", "April Love", "Speedy Gonzales" and "Moody River", among others. This 40-track 2-CD collection brings together the biggest hits and many of his best-known songs from the era, including all his 28 UK chart entries, with the others all being US hits. It's a comprehensive and hugely enjoyable overview of his UK chart career during the first crucial decade of what has become a distinguished half century in the music business, and in public life, and we are sure it will appeal to a huge number of pop fans and collectors.
