Cliff Heard Them Here First! - Ace CD  



Cliff Heard Them Here First!


Cliff Richard showed great taste when it came to cutting songs first recorded by other artists. Here are 24 orginals he was savvy enough to cover on the way to superstardom.

Although the majority of Cliff Richards hits have come with songs written expressly for him, or that he was the first to cut, the outside repertoire that he has recorded throughout his career has been more interesting than the choices of many of his contemporaries. Sir Cliff was not the only home-grown rocker to cover US material but, unlike his peers, he seldom went into a studio and simply made over the latest fast-rising American hit. With the help of his long time A&R man and producer Norrie Paramor, Cliff found a formidable number of fantastic songs hidden away on obscure US 45s and albums unavailable here.

Having previously celebrated the good taste in covers of his early hero in Elvis Heard It Here First, Ace felt it only fair to follow up with a companion volume that does likewise for the Peter Pan of pop. The tracks selected for Cliff Heard Them Here First show just how broad Cliffs tastes were.
