The Very Best of Maureen Evans 1958-1962

Cardiff-born MAUREEN EVANS was perhaps the most famous singer who recorded for Embassy Records, the Woolworths record label. Many of her Embassy covers outsold the original hit versions, notably on songs like Stupid Cupid; Born Too Late; Goodbye, Jimmy, Goodbye; Lipstick On Your Collar; and Plenty Good Lovin’.
She also recorded for Embassy’s parent label, Oriole,with tracks including 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 compilation includes all her hits and important releases, alongside a handful of collectors’ rarities, many of which have never been reissued before.
