Tommy Steele and the Steelmen
British Steele 2-CD Set
59 TRACKS ON 2 CDS
THE SINGLES 1956-1962 AND MORE
From rockin’ teenager to accomplished all-round entertainer, Tommy Steele has done it all in a career that now spans sixty years (and counting!). The UK’s first bona fide rock‘n’roll act, Tommy was the first young person to play the music that enchanted his generation, inspiring so many kids to emulate him. British Steele chronicles his first six years as a recording artist. It contains the A and B sides of all of his singles, plus bonus tracks culled from his EPs of the period. Also included, for the first time on CD, is Tommy’s spoken word entry in Weekend magazine’s The Truth About Me series. The annotated booklet provides great detail about the man and his music. This is the first time that any digital reissue has put Tommy Steele’s early career into such historical perspective.
