MICHAEL HOLLIDAY - widely known as 'The British Bing Crosby' - was one of the most popular male singers in the UK during the 1950s.
Although he was an old school crooner, singing in a style which would rapidly become anachronistic, he enjoyed a hugely successful career, with a string of hit 45s and popular EPs and LPs.
This compilation is drawn largely from his singles releases between 1955-62 and features all his UK hits, notably his two UK No.1s, 'The Story Of My Life' and 'Starry Eyed', alongside 'Nothin' To Do', 'Hot Diggity', 'The Gal With The Yaller Shoes', 'Ten Thousand Miles', 'In Love', 'Stairway Of Love', 'I'll Always Be In Love With You', 'Skylark' and 'Little Boy Lost'.
Also includes popular sides like 'The Yellow Rose Of Texas', 'Four Walls', 'She Was Only Seventeen', 'My Heart Is An Open Book', 'Palace Of Love', 'Remember Me, I'm The One Who Loves You' and 'Have I Told You Lately That I Love You'.
Several of these sides have never appeared on CD before while the bonus track, 'Let's Do It', a live a duet with Lita Roza, has never previously been released.
