There was a time when pretty much anyone off the telly, or anyone on the silver screen, made a record.

There were very few ways of getting  closer to the stars in the fifties and pre-Beatles sixties –  so a 45 was a means for fans to grab something tangible.

It might be a novelty record (Terry-Thomas), a film theme (Sid James and Liz Fraser) or a serious stab at an alternative career (Ian McShane); sometimes it was a side project that reflected an intriguing, little known side to a star (Spike Milligan). Most sank like a stone, but they remain fascinating and delightful curios, totally reminiscent of the era of Ford Zephyrs, Consulate cigs and kitchen sink movies.
