KEN DODD Love is Like a Violin – Music CD
THE EARLY SINGLES AND MORE
24 TRACKS on one CD
When British National Treasure Sir Ken Dodd OBE died in 2018, he left a void in the world of entertainment that will never be filled. A funny man on and off stage for seven decades, Ken’s main line of work as a comedic genius was bolstered for most of that time by a sideline as a successful singer, with many major hits. This new collection includes all of his recordings from 1960 to 1962, including his signature song: Love Is Like A Violin, plus other early chart successes such as Pianissimo; Once In Every Lifetime and the complete contents of Ken’s first 1962 album. With his fine singing voice, Ken sold more singles in the UK in his heyday as a singer than the Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan, with 19 Top 75 hits – 18 of which made the Top 40. Remastered from the finest available sources, with informative sleeve notes, this collection shows why Doddy’s popularity as a singer was so enduring, and why this legendary entertainer’s version of The Liverpool Sound co-existed so successfully alongside his fellow scousers such as the Beatles.
