• Adam FAITH - What Do You Want? - The Singles Collection 1958-1962

With his finely-chiselled features, fiercely-sharp cheekbones, continental hairjob, garbled enunciation and mangled vowels, singer/actor ADAM FAITH was the UK's second most popular Teen Idol, to Cliff Richard, in the pre-Beatles era.

Although his first few 45s stiffed, his fourth and fifth, 'What Do You Want' and 'Poor Me', both topped the UK charts, and he followed with fifteen further UK hits over the next two-and-a-half years.

This compilation rounds up all Adam's As and B-sides between 1958-62, including his other hits, 'Someone Else's Baby', 'When Johnny Comes Marching Home', 'Made You', 'How About That', 'Lonely Pup', 'Who Am I', 'This Is It', 'Easy Going Me', 'Don't You Know It', 'The Time Has Come', 'Lonesome', 'As You Like It', 'Don't That Beat All' and 'Baby Take A Bow'.

Also included are a couple of killer bonus tracks from the 1961 Beat Girl soundtrack, the cult teen angst movie in which Adam made his acting debut.

Most of these songs were written by Johnny Worth (aka Les Vandyke) and arranged & produced by John Barry.
