Description

  • Perhaps the most successful British artist to never have a #1 record (his biggest hit, Jealousy, had stalled at #2), BILLY FURY was one of the biggest home-grown Pop Stars of the pre-Beatles era.
  • 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 StarsHalfway To Paradise, I’d Never Find Another You,Last Night Was Made For Love,Once Upon A Dream.
  • This unique compilation presents the As 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 45s.
  • This is 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.
