“Summer Holiday” by Cliff Richard and The Shadows - album review

TJR says

Wey-hey! Britain’s chief Elvis wannabe follows the man all the way into the cheese-fest world of the teen idol movie soundtrack. Sometimes, it’s so bad that it actually works, by at least making me smile at the absurd gaiety of it all. Mostly, however, the album would be down with a dire rating in the 2 points spectrum, were it not for some neat little Shadows tunes interspersed with some Tom & Jerry style slapstick style orchestration. That said, the best track is undoubtedly Cliff’s entirely sing-able “Bachelor Boy”.
