Although he was a more-than competent songwriter himself, some of Billy Fury's biggest hits were covers and/or revivals of American discs, this unique compilation presents the US hit versions of thirty-one songs which Billy later recorded, variously as A-side, B-sides, or EP/LP tracks 

Artists featured herein range from well-known, major players like Marty Robbins, Frankie Laine, Gladys Knight, Johnnie Ray, Hank Williams, Ray Charles, Elvis Presley, etc., to obscure names like Austin Taylor, Nicki North, Barry Darvell, Ricky Shaw, Chase Webster, The Blackwells, etc.

This is, of course, the frst time that such a compilation has been assembled and is therefore a mandatory must-have for Billy Fury fans.

Many of the rarer sides herein are unavailable elsewhere on CD.
