    Shelia / Sheila - The Early Years CD

    This collection comprises of Tommy Roe's complete recordings between 1960-62 and also includes his two earlier 45s recorded as a 17-year old.
    One of which was his remarkably rare original recording of "Shelia" (miss-spelled on the record label) from 1960.
    Some of these recordings are almost impossible to find elsewhere on CD, notably those two early singles, as well as a couple of his 1962 non-album 45s.
    When Tommy Roe topped the US charts with "Sheila" in 1962 he stirred up controversy fuelled by accusations that he was copying the late Buddy Holly.
    Nonetheless the disc was a multi-million-selling, worldwide, hit and Tommy went on to become a major star throughout the decade, notching up no less than 22 entries in the US singles chart.
    The same year that Sheila topped the charts, he charted internationally with his debut LP (also titled Sheila) and scored and follow-up hits with "Susie Darlin'", "Piddle De Pat", "Town Crier" and "Gonna Take A Chance".
