Singer/guitarist/banjo-plucker/songwriter DICKIE BISHOP, a sideman whose name is synonymous with Chris Barber and Lonnie Donegan, should have been a contender for solo success, but seemed instead destined to a career in supporting roles.

Indeed, he featured heavily on a pair of million-selling singles, Donegan’s ‘Lost John’ and Barber’s ‘Petite Fleur’. His own most well-known song, ‘No Other Baby’, was covered by The Vipers and Bobby Helms (the latter, a UK hit), while in the 1990s it was famously revived by Paul McCartney, who took it back into the UK charts.

This collection comprises his four humongously-collectable solo singles from 1957/58, on which Dickie was backed by his own group, The Sidekicks, alongside a selection of his most notable appearances as a singer and/or sideman, between 1955 and 1961, recorded variously with Barber, Donegan, Johnny Duncan, Monty Sunshine and Kenny Ball. Several of Dickie’s solo sides have never previously appeared on CD, while this is the first time that his career has been thus anthologised, making for a unique, highly-desirable compilation.
