David Whitfield - Very best of David Whitfield (1997) Retail CD
While America had Nat King Cole, Dean Martin and Perry Como, Britain had its equivalent singers including Ronnie Hilton and David Whitfield.David had eleven UK top ten hits between 1953 and 1957, two of which made number one. He had eight other UK hits, the last being I believe, which just made the bottom of the charts for one week in 1960. By that time, rock'n'roll had taken over and few people cared about David's singles but he had already made plenty of great music for future generations of fans to enjoy.This is the first of three volumes but the majority of David's big hits are here and themore… remaining hits are on volume 2.David's first number one was Answer me, which had to compete with a rival version by Frankie Laine. Frankie's version spent more weeks at nimber one than David's though there was one week where they were joint number one. Barbara Dickson covered the song in the seventies and had a UK top ten hit with it and, as far as most Brits are concerned, it has now become her song.David's second and biggest number one hit was Cara Mia, on which he was supported by Mantonavi and his orchestra. It spent ten weeks at the top in 1954 and also made the American top ten - very rare for a British record in those days.David's other UK top ten hits on this album are Rags to riches, The book, Santo Natale, Everywhere, When you lose the one you love, My September love and Adoration waltz.With all those big hits, a minor hit (I believe) and several other great songs, this provides an excellent introduction to David's music.
