    I'll start it off with

    I recently heard Wondrous Place used on a TV-programme-trailor, and although it's technically a record from 1960, it reminded me how talented Billy Fury was as both a performer and song-writer.

    He was in my opinion Frank, the BEST of the British rockers.

    I was very lucky to see him perform live at the 'Blue Boar' at Hucknall not long before his death.

    He said at the time, back in the 50s/early 60s, he loved singing the uptempo rocking numbers, but his record company wanted more ballads and love songs.

    Last Shadow Puppets covered Wondrous Place, it's magnificent but not as good as Billy Fury's version. I have it on 7" and it'll be going into me box

    No 50s music thread would be complete without a bit of Link Wray
