Roy Castle Castlewise Expanded Edition CD
26 TRACKS on 1 CD
A debut CD release of Roy’s first LP, featured here in its rare stereo version. It features Roy as a singer, instrumentalist and tap dancer. The great Wally Stott’s impeccable arrangements make the album a lost classic. The set is expanded to feature all but one side of his Pye and Phillips singles released between 1958-1962, most of which are re-issued for the first time.
Featuring standards and songs written both for and by Roy, including his Christmas hit Little White Berry, this set shows what an incredible talent he was and why he became such an institution on TV radio and film.
