Celebrating his 56th anniversary in the music business this year, Cliff Richard is indisputably Britain’s all-time greatest hit-maker ‘ the ultimate pop star! No other UK band or solo artist is even close to equalling his 100 album releases, 123 single hits, or can claim to have occupied a place in our charts for the equivalent of over 20 years! Highlights of this remarkable career are too numerous to mention, but successful films, musicals, concert tours and television shows have all contributed to the Cliff Richard legend.
Amidst a flurry of publicity Cliff released his 100th album ‘The Fabulous Rock ‘n’ Roll Songbook’ on 11 November 2013. This studio album of 15 great rock ‘n’ roll tracks was recorded live at the Blackbird Studio and The Parlor in Nashville, Tennessee, and is Cliff’s tribute to the greats of rock ‘n’ roll who inspired and influenced him, such as Elvis Presley, Little Richard, Chuck Berry and Buddy Holly. Sir Cliff released his debut album in 1959, and has since released 46 studio albums, seven soundtracks, 11 live albums and 35 compilations.
Cliff’s knighthood, bestowed in the 1995 Birthday Honours for his tireless charity work, was the first such to be given to a pop star. His practical support of so many good causes reflects the reality of his deep Christian commitment, which began in the mid-1960’s, and which, despite the media critics who claimed it was a passing fad or a publicity gimmick, has been the motivating force in his life ever since.
