Bear Family finally supplies the long overdue compilation to Colin Hicks, the quite unjustly neglected brother of Tommy Hicks, better known as Tommy Steele. Altogether 27 songs from the years 1957-1961, which he recorded both in England and in his later adopted country Italy. Among them are several cover versions, which were recorded in the studio in an extremely explosive way, especially the recordings with his Cabin Boys. Also included are extraordinary rarities, such as the Italian sung Impazzivo Per Te, with the Tony de Vita Orchestra, which appeared in 1960 as a magazine supplement only on so-called Flexi-Disc! The 36-page color booklet contains the biography written by British music journalist Ashley Wood, plus many rare photos and memorabilia.
