KENNY LYNCH UP ON THE ROOF
20 Tracks on one 47min CD
During a 60+ year career, during which he was an ubiquitous TV, radio and movie personality, the hugely-popular KENNY LYNCH OBE left his mark as a singer, songwriter, producer, actor, comic, entertainer and more. Kenny’s early recording career has been largely overlooked; and although it included a couple of significant hits, this body of work has never previously been reissued. It includes his HMV singles releases between 1960-62, with Mountain of Love, Puff (Up In Smoke) and Up On The Roof, plus jukebox favourites like There’s Never Been A Girl and It Would Take A Miracle. Also included are both sides of a novelty single he recorded with Barbara Windsor and partner-in-crime Harry Fowler, plus a live track recorded with Tubby Hayes, which later featured in the film Dr Terror’s House Of Horrors. This rare body of work features half a dozen sides, which have never been reissued in any format, making this an essential release for all Kenny Lynch fans. INCLUDES A FOLD-OUT BOOKLET WITH FULL OVERVIEW OF KENNY’S CAREER AND MUSIC.
