It's All In The Game - The MGM recordings 1958-1960 2CD - Tommy Edwards

It's All In The Game - The MGM recordings 1958-1960 2CD
Tommy Edwards shot to fame in 1958 with his ‘beat ballad’ update of the old standard It’s All In The Game, which topped the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, the R&B chart and the UK singles chart, selling 3.5 million copies worldwide.
It made a star out of the singer/songwriter from Richmond, Virginia, who was then 36 years old. Edwards had first recorded the song for MGM in 1951 but this remake for the rock’n’roll era transformed his career.
Edwards first made an impact as an R&B artist as early as 1946 when he penned ‘That Chick’s Too Young To Fry’ for Louis Jordan. Subsequently, his songs were recorded by Elvis Presley, Cliff Richard, the Four Tops and even Donny & Marie Osmond.
Tommy sadly passed away at the tender age of 47 but 15 October is now ‘Tommy Edwards Day’ in his home town as a mark of respect.
This 2-CD set offers four albums and several singles A’s and B’s from Tommy Edwards’ ‘purple patch’ with MGM, following the global success of It’s All In The Game.
All are taken from the original master tapes in the US MGM vaults, resulting in the majority of the tracks being presented in true stereo and have been re-mastered. Accompanied by a fully illustrated and annotated colour booklet.
The package includes his subsequent US hits: Please Love Me Forever (#61), Love Is All We Need (#15), remakes of two more of his earlier hits – Please, Mr. Sun (#11), The Morning Side Of The Mountain (#27) – Mr Melancholy Baby (#26), It’s Only The Good Times (#86), I’ve Been There (#53), I Looked At Heaven (#100), (New In) The Ways Of Love (#47), Honestly And Truly (#65), Don’t Fence Me In (#45), I Really Don’t Want To Know (#18) and It’s Not The End Of Everything (#78).
