Norman Alexander Milne (1924-1963), as 'Michael Holliday' earned the epithet 'Britain’s Bing Crosby'. But he was more than that; in the late 50s and early 60s he was one of the UK’s best-known and best-loved entertainers,
with a warm, mellow, light baritone that oozed relaxation. Sadly, that veneer masked a tormented soul (he committed suicide at the age of 38) but, through his recorded legacy, his golden voice can still ease all cares away. Retrospective’s tribute offers 59 examples of his artistry, including all his chart successes, headed by the No.1s The Story Of My Life and Starry Eyed. Enjoyable though his pop singles were, it is to songs from his five albums that we turn for his greatest skill: delivering stylish interpretations of evergreen standards, and while many were associated with his idol and friend, Bing, Michael Holliday always has something special to give. In such beautiful songs as Berlin’s Marrying For Love, or Carmichael’s Skylark, he is quite simply unsurpassed.
