LARRY PARNES: LARRY’S BOYS
Music CD: 33 Tracks on 1 CD
LARRY PARNES, manager/agent/impresario/entrepreneur, known as “Parnes, Shillings And Pence”, was perhaps the most important non-performing figure in UK Rock ‘n’ Roll. He discovered and managed Britain’s first genuine Rock ‘n’ Roller, Tommy Steele, in 1956, after which he steadily built his famous “Stable Of Stars”, whose frontline members included Billy Fury, Marty Wilde, Dickie Pride (all three widely acknowledged as Britain’s finest rockers) and the irrepressible Joe Brown. His ‘stable’ also included Jess Conrad, Terry Dene, Vince Eager, Steele’s younger brother Colin Hicks, Johnny Gentle, Duffy Power, Peter Wynne, Julian X, The Viscounts, Lance Fortune, Danny Rivers, Nelson Keene, and of course The Tornados, whose multi-million selling ‘Telstar’ reached number 1 in both the UK and US charts. All are featured on this compilation, which includes hits, well-known near misses, and a couple of collectors’ rarities.
