These are her main albums from the peak of her popularity in the early s from Abbey Road Studios. In the "Rock Notes" sketch on Monty Python's Contractual Obligation Album , Eric Idle jokingly refers to "Helen Shapiro" as the last of many names with which a particular rock band reinvents itself after every break-up: "That last name, their favourite, had to be dropped following an injunction, and they split up again.

As I already wrote elswhere, compilation cd's are never perfect But for once I have to say, this album is realy great After I bought it I did some research on the net.
The "surprise" was that the 30 songs presented here are the "a" and "b" sides of 15 singles There should be more compilation albums like this. People compilers do mostly forget that there are still some people alive who bought vynil But "the guys upthere" just want to earn lots of money and are not really interested in what we "the public" want.
This compilation album is one of the exceptions to that rule. Ze points from Belgium"? One person found this helpful. Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again. She was, however, more than just a pop singer having a great jazz voice and, as well as most of her pop hits, there are a few jazz classics on this compilation.
Some have commented that a few well known songs are omitted, but that always happens on any compilation for any artist and this is an excellent collection of her early years. Helen is still performing, primarily gospel songs and hymns - indeed, the first time I saw her live was only few years ago at Keswick Christian Convention and her voice, along with her testimony, was better than ever.
I love my music this is a nice tape. Blast from the past. Load more international reviews. I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend and he loved it. It has all the major hits, a good quality sound and it arrived on time. A truly original vocal quality performing some terrific songs. I remember her singing 'Walking back to happiness, a number 1 when she was only 15 years old. There is a good mixture of old and new songs on here and I would not hesitate in recommending it.
A pop legend and one of the iconic voices of the sixties! A great collection of songs, including all Helen's hit records! She was equally at home belting out "The Birth of the Blues," imparting a surprisingly blues-influenced feeling to "A Teenager in Love," or oozing pre-feminist defiance in "Walking Back to Happiness," and by rights should have been able to find a niche on the charts well into the middle and late '60s.
The incongruity of a year-old who might usually be spending her time in high school doing a song like "Walking Back to Happiness" was lost in the more innocent era in which she worked. Shapiro wasn't remotely as soul-influenced as Dusty Springfield though Shapiro 's Helen in Nashville album from does sort of anticipate Dusty in Memphis , or a raspy shouter like Lulu , and there wasn't much of the cool teenager in her in the style of Sandie Shaw or the wounded teen softness of Lesley Gore.
It wasn't to be, however. After appearing in her second movie, Play It Cool, which starred Billy Fury , Shapiro faded from the charts, although she didn't disappear from the British musical consciousness.
She still headlined tours in the United Kingdom and in early , she made the acquaintance of a support act that had been newly signed to EMI: the Beatles. She headlined the Beatles ' first national tour of England and Shapiro and the group enjoyed each other's company.Released 10 March on Columbia (EMI) (catalog no. 33SX ; Vinyl LP).
