Co-authored with Peter Lewry. Foreword by Cliff Richard.
Cliff Richard: The Complete Recording Sessions 1958-1990 is the definitive account of all Cliff’s recording sessions from his very first in 1958, right through to the 1990 Saviour’s Day session. Every song is fully documented and the text is illustrated throughout with a rare collection of photographs, acetates, recording session sheets, studio tape boxes, labels and sleeves.
Say publishers, Blandford Press, ‘During the research and compilation of this unique archive, the authors gained the respect and co-operation of the Cliff Richard Organisation and various recording studios, including EMI’s Abbey Road. The generous access to extensive records and archives which resulted, has revealed a number of surprises to both artist and record company and are detailed in this remarkable book for the first time.’
In his foreword to the book, Cliff writes: ‘Happily there are those who believe our musical past is worth preserving and sharing, and are prepared to invest effort to ensure that it happens. I doff my hat to Nigel and Peter who are two such guys.’
Cliff Richard: The Complete Recording Sessions 1958-1990, fully endorsed by Cliff Richard and EMI Records, will be published in softback at around £10. The book will contain a complete UK discography of first releases, a complete index of song titles and technical index. The front cover will feature an exclusive picture of Cliff taken during the recording of Saviour’s Day.
