ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Charlie Gracie is one of a diminishing number of rock-n-roll innovators, who continues to actively perform. A native of South Philadelphia, he became the first successful recording star of the "Rock Era" to emerge from that neighborhood. In 1957, Charlie's 'Butterfly' topped the American and British music charts, selling over 3 million copies. His other late fifties big sellers include: 'Fabulous', 'Ninety-Nine Ways', 'Wanderin Eyes' and 'I Love You So Much It Hurts'. These hits bankrolled Philly's famous Cameo-Parkway record label, making it a dominant force in the music industry for nearly a decade! At the height of his fame, Charlie frequently appeared on 'Dick Clark's American Bandstand', 'The Ed Sullivan Show', and 'Alan Freed's TV Specials'. He headlined shows at the Brooklyn Paramount, the Casino Royale in Washington, The 500 Club in Atlantic City, and Old Connie Mack Stadium in Philadelphia. Charlie's star burned even brighter in Great Britain where he became the second American artist to bring rock-n-roll to the English concert stage. Preceded only by Bill Haley, Charlie headlined the London Palladium and Hippodrome receiving outstanding receptions from the press and public. To this day, Charlie Gracie, is a much loved and respected performer the length and breadth of the United Kingdom. His latest CD features his favourite songs, done in his swinging style.

CHARLIE IS STILL "AMAZING GRACIE!"
We in the U.K. have been well aware of Charlie Gracie and what he brings to our industry for decades--the first solo American rock 'n' roll star to truly conuquer the British Isles. This cd brings us something a tad different--Charlie playing some of is faves that pre-date rock 'n' roll. His versatility shines through again as he breezes through these numbers with ease--as if he created them all himself. I highly recommend this disc--so pleasant and so entertaining! PB

Classic songs by a classic artist!
Now in his sixth decade as a recording artist, the voice and guitar of Charlie Gracie are undiminished and as vibrant as ever. This relaxed and spirited session recorded during an overseas tour in 2006 with a sympathetic band behind him features some cool and unusual song choices and a vintage sound. This is a great CD that goes by all too quickly!
