Cliff Richard


Cliff Richard and the Shadows

A big year for Cliff and 'The Shads', both together and alone. The Young Ones was a No.1 hit for both of them, as was The Next Time/Bachelor Boy.

Then Cliff went off filming Summer Holiday, which came out in 1963 (while his film, The Young Ones was still going great guns at the box office).

Not wanting to let the grass grow under their feet, The Shadows went on to release two of their own chart toppers, Wonderful Land and Dance On.

Cliff went on to become one of only 4 artists to hit the singles chart every year of the 1960s.

Remarkably the so called 'Peter Pan of Pop', born in 1940 in India, has also managed to achieve chart success in each of the last 6 decades.
