The Essential Collection (CD)
Perhaps best known to younger audiences as the hero of Richard Thompson's classic tribute song Al Bowlly's In Heaven, AVID's latest release in the Essential series features one of the great vocalists of the last century, the aforementioned Mr Al Bowlly. Nearly thirty before he arrived in London in 1928 for a residency at the Savoy Hotel at the request of bandleader Fred Elizalde Al quickly established himself as a major singing star. In late 1930 he came to the attention of Ray Noble and enjoyed a successful collaboration with his band before hooking up with Roy Fox and Decca where his career really took off both in the UK and in the USA. Listen to Al Bowlly sing and you will hear a truly contemporary voice, one that would be equally at home in today's pop world as it was over 70 years ago. Sit back and enjoy our 52 wonderfully re-mastered selections and you too could be in heaven with Al Bowlly!
