Released on 31/08/09. First-ever collection of the Sheffield singer’s complete early recordings for Decca from 1963 to 1966. Includes the No. 1 smash ‘’The Crying Game’ (later immortalised in Neil Jordan’s hit film) as well as other hits ‘Memphis Tennessee’, ‘My Baby Left Me’, ‘Baby It’s You’ and ‘One Heart Between Two’. Kicks off with two previously unissued pre-Decca demos by Berry with Joe Brown’s Bruvvers, produced by Mickie Most in 1963! Sleeve-notes include new quotes from Dave.
