Description

  • Marketed as the UK’s version of Ricky Nelson, CRAIG DOUGLAS was hugely popular in the pre-Beatles era.
  • He had far more hits than people usually remember, clocking up thirteen UK chart entries between 1959-62.
  • Craig was still only 18 when he topped the charts in the summer of 1959 with his jaunty cover of Sam Cooke’s ‘Only Sixteen’.
  • This set includes that and all his other UK hits, notably ‘Come Softly To Me’, ‘Teenager In Love’, ‘Pretty Blue Eyes’, ‘Heart Of A Teenage Girl’, ‘A Hundred Pounds Of Clay’, ‘Time’, ‘When My Little Girl Is Smiling’, ‘Our Favourite Melodies’, ‘Oh Lonesome Me’, etc.
  • Also included are a handful of songs from films in which he appeared, that weren’t issued the first time around.
  • Several of these sides are impossible to find elsewhere on CD.
  • Craig recorded for four different record companies between 1958-62; this is the first time his releases from all four labels have been compiled together on one package, making it a must-purchase for his fans.
