Two CD set. Eden Kane - the stage name for Richard Graham Sarstedt - was a big star of that early '60s period now sometimes labeled Pop Before The Beatles. Eden is the older brother of musicians Peter and Clive Sarstedt. After a lone single for Pye, he hit the top spot with his first of many 45s for Decca, 'Well I Ask You', which now appropriately lends it's name to the first-ever compilation of Eden's entire recorded output. It was followed by three more Top 10 UK hits over the next year: 'Get Lost' (#10), 'Forget Me Not' (#3) and 'I Don't Know Why' (#7). In due course, Eden made seven singles, three EPs and an album for Decca before switching to Fontana Records in 1963. Again, the relationship yielded an album and seven singles (alongside an EP) but while Eden's music matured, he struggled to maintain the same level of chart success as before. In addition to all of Eden's Pye, Decca and Fontana recordings, this set also boasts his rarest offerings which followed, from three elusive singles only available in Australia/New Zealand to an obscure Bell 45 from 1970. Thereafter, Eden reverted to his real name but reactivated the Eden Kane moniker for a one-off single in 1980. Many of the tracks are here as the first time on CD, also another rarity many in true stereo.
