Born in Essex, The King Brothers: Denis, Anthony and Michael, (who was married to the actress Carol White), were a British pop vocal trio popular in the late 1950s and early 1960s. They first performed together professionally on the TV show Shop Window in 1952, also appearing early in their career on Six-Five Special, and in 1956 they became the youngest Variety act to play the London Palladium. By 1957 the trio had been named “top vocal group” in the reader’s poll for the NME. A White Sport Coat And A Pink Carnation became their first hit and more hits followed, all recorded on the Parlophone label at Abbey Road Studios. They appeared with Peter Sellers, Harry Secombe, Frankie Vaughan, Roy Castle, Shirley Bassey, Alma Cogan, Ronnie Corbett, Bruce Forsyth and Morecambe & Wise, as well as many American stars, including Frank Sinatra. This compilation is officially endorsed by the King Brothers with liner notes and pictures supplied by Denis King, who went on to create themes and music for over 200 television series, including Dick Turpin, Black Beauty, Lovejoy, We’ll Meet Again and Hannay, as well as jingles for radio and television advertising. He has written many films scores, including Not Tonight, Darling (1971), Holiday on the Buses (1973), and Sweeney! (1977), as well as working on theatre productions. He now lives in Suffolk.
