Originally the featured vocalist with the Ted Heath Band, Dickie Valentine launched a solo career in 1954 (although he had released solo singles a year earlier) and within three years had become one of the biggest teen idols of the era: in 1957 he had to hire the Royal Albert Hall in order to accommodate all the members of his fan club that wished to attend his annual party. Dickie was to score two number one hit singles, Finger Of Suspicion and Christmas Alphabet, both of which are included here, and a further six top ten hits over the course of just three years. Although he stopped having hits when the 1960s arrived, he remained a popular live draw until his death in a car crash in 1971. This 22 track album contains all ten of the hits he registered between 1953 1956, as well as other key tracks.
