The Very Best of Maureen Evans - Embassies & Orioles 1958-1962 CD
Cardiff-born Maureen Evans was perhaps the most famous singer who recorded for Embassy records, the Woolworths-only budget record label.
Many of her Embassy covers outsold the original hit versions in the UK, notably on songs like Stupid Cupid, Born Too Late, Goodbye Jimmy Goodbye, Lipstick On Your Collar and Plenty Good Lovin'.
She subsequently recorded for Embassy's parent label, Oriole, charting with sides like The Big Hurt' Love Kisses and Heartaches, Paper Roses, Never In A Million Years and her 1962 worldwide million-selling hit Like I Do.
This collection presents the very best of Maureen Evans' Embassy and Oriole Records output between 1958 and 62 and includes all her hits and most important releases, alongside a handful of collectors' rarities.
Several of these sides are difficult to find elsewhere on CD, while a half-dozen or so have never previously been reissued in any format.
