• Billy FURY - Last Night Was Made For Love - The Singles Collection 1959-1962

Perhaps the most successful British artist to never have a #1 record (his biggest hit, 'Jealousy', had stalled at #2), BILLY FURY was one of the biggest home-grown Pop Stars of the pre-Beatles era.

Although several of his early hits were self-penned rockers - e.g. 'Maybe Tomorrow', 'Margo (Don't Go)', 'Collette', 'That's Love' - his record label, Decca, successfully converted him into a purveyor of string-driven beat ballads, e.g. 'Wondrous Place', 'A?Thousand Stars' 'Halfway To Paradise', 'I'd Never?Find Another You', 'Last Night Was Made For Love', 'Once Upon A?Dream'.

This unique compilation presents the As and B-sides of Billy's first sixteen singles, plus a bonus track, 'Fury's Tune', from his first LP, on which he namechecks six of his early 45s.

This is a truly phenomenal body of work, and serves to confirm that Fury's B-sides were very often as strong as their topsides.

Although Bill died in 1983 his popularity remains as high as ever - indeed, there are currently three different 'Tribute' acts touring the UK, each doing good business.
