Colin Hicks & The Cabin Boys
Little Boy Blue - The Rock & Roll Years CD

Famously the younger brother of Britain's very first rock 'n' roller Tommy Steele, the much-underrated Colin Hicks was destined to enjoy his biggest successes in mainland Europe, notably in Italy, where he became a major star.
This 35-track compilation presents his three Pye 45s, alongside the pick of his Italian releases.
Much of this material is virtually impossible to find elsewhere on CD.
He kickstarted his career as a 16-year old, in the summer of 1957, with three releases for Pye Records, which included a couple of near-hits/jukebox favourites, 'Wild Eyes And Tender Lips' and 'Little Boy Blue'.
During 1958 Hicks unexpectedly became a huge star in Italy after live clips of he and his band, The Cabin Boys, were included in a prestigious documentary.
The same year he toured Italy, initially third on a bill headed by The Platters, taking over star billing during the tour.
The following year he moved to Milan, where he cut a series of huge hits, comprising cover versions of songs like Teenager In Love, Tallahassee Lassie, Brand New Cadillac, Oh Boy!, Twenty Flight Rock and many others.
