By Peter Durward Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on May 2, 2003
Format: Audio CD
My guess is that Michael's success was largely limited to his native Britain, many of his recordings being covers of American songs. He was Liverpool's second pop star (following Lita Roza) and topped the British charts in 1958 with Story of my life and again in 1960 with Starry eyed. In between, he reached number three with Stairway of love.

Michael had a smooth, baritone voice that he used effectively to sing all types of song. I remember him best for a cover of Vernon Dalhart's Runaway train (I was a small boy at the time), but that track is omitted from this collection. It's the sort of song you either love or hate and the compiler obviously hated it.

What you do get here are excellent covers of Hot diggity, I'll always be in love with you, Skylark, Have I told you lately that I love you, I wonder who's kissing her now, The folks who live on the hill, The yellow rose of Texas, Dear heart, My last date with you and Old Cape Cod, as well as several less well known songs.

Michael died prematurely aged just 34, possibly caused by a drugs overdose. Fans of the British based Irish singer Val Doonican should check out Michael Holliday - their musical styles and voices have a lot in common.

Michael Holliday's death in 1963 shocked a nation who had been charmed by his apparent easy going style and warm Bing like voice since he arrived on the scene in 1955. On this CD he sings a wonderful version of the classic 'The Folks Who Live On The Hill' which is worth the price of admission and it's arguable that it's his best ever performance on record. Other standards such as 'I Wonder Who's Kissing Her Now' and 'Have I Told You Lately That I Love You' are also top-notch and there's a sprinkling of Mike's chart hits as well.
Included is the sadly ironic 'My Last Date (With You) which is sung beautifully by Michael and it was to be his final single release on Columbia.
