• Tommy EDWARDS - The Hits and More

Tommy Edwards was a vocalist, pianist and composer who made an impact in early R&B circles.

Features all 21 of his chart hits including, 'Please Mr Sun', 'My Melancholy Baby' and his biggest hit 'It's All in the Game' which became an R&B and pop staple. His version of, 'A Fool Such As I' went on to be recorded by Elvis Presley for whom it sold millions.

Although Tommy died in 1969, his material hasn't been readily available but the 53 tracks here stand out and show what a great vocalist he was.

This is a fine mixture of standards and hits from one of R&B's early stars.
