Russ Hamilton

Well, I’ve never found a “Best Of Russ Hamilton” or a “Russ Hamilton’s Greatest Hits,” so I had to put this together myself, and I must say that I did a splendid job, collecting every single one of his top 100 singles. Well, sure he only had one, but is that my fault? (Check out Amazon, there is one copy of one collection currently available.)

I took all these tracks (!) from The Roots Of British Rock.

Russ Hamilton:

Rainbow – His Liverpool accent comes through loud and clear on this song of unabashed romantic sentiment. This was a hit in the summer of 1957, at a time when hits by English artists were rare. Not the Marmalade song.
