David Whitfield

Genre oldies, vocal, male, 60s, tenor

David Whitfield was a popular Tenor of the mid 1950,s
In his day he was fabulously popular , and sang to capacity crowds .
He appeared on the Ed sullivan show several times with great aplomb .
In the later 1950,s his style of singing had to compete with the likes of Buddy Holly , Elvis Presley ,and by the early 1960,s had moved into musicals such as "The Desert Song" and "Rose Marie", and recorded classic albums such as "ALONE" with his wonderful semi operatic style of singing.
In his day he sang a large range of songs and was sometimes likened to the great Mario Lanza.
He just loved travelling , and visited Canada and especially Australia many times ,
His great hits , were those he recorded with Mantovani ,his favorite being "When You lose the one you love"
Many of his songs were written for his voice alone ,well known exceptions being "I Believe"(1953) also recorded by Franke Laine and "Thats When your Heartaches Begin" (1958),also recorded by Elvis Presley
He was and is the most popular British recording artist of the 1950,s with a career extending into the 60,s and 70,s ,appearing on many quiz programs on australian television as a special guest .
Much missed by many and I note with interest many new CD releases in 2006 .
