Adam Faith - The Very Best of Adam Faith (1997) Retail CD
Early British Pop/ Rock
Tommy Steele was the first star of British rock'n'roll to he followed by others including Cliff Richard, Marty Wilde (father Kim Wilde), Craig Douglas and Billy Fury. By the time Adam Faith emerged at the end of 1959, Tommy was already looking for a new career direction. Adam peaked at the beginning of his career with the song he is best remembered for, the UK chart-topper What do you want? He followed it with another number one, Poor me, and a number two, Someone else's baby. He never scaled those lofty heights in the charts again but his next four hits all made the top five and he had threemore… further UK top five hits, a top ten hit and five that just missed the top ten, peaking at eleven or twelve. He also had several lesser hits. My favorites are What do you want, Someone else's baby, Lonely pup in a Christmas shop and Message to Martha. Adam's early hits were mainly up-tempo rockers but as time progressed, he tended to record more ballads. He was never really a balladeer, though, and he eventually abandoned his singing career to become a successful businessman. Apart from his own musical legacy, his other claim to fame is that he gave Sandie Shaw her big break. Those people who follow charts can have no complaints about this collection as it contains all his UK hits, major and minor, including both sides of two double-sided hits without any un-credited B-sides or album tracks. Furthermore, all the tracks are in chronological order. So if you want a sample of Adam's music, it's all here.
