Subject: RE: Lyr Req: A Handful of Songs (Tommy Steele)
I watched the video of Singing The Blues out of curiosity because I always liked it by Guy Mitchell. I thought it was really lazy that he was pretending to play the guitar but he wasn't even strumming in rhythm with the song. At least Elvis kept the rhythm...

Tommy Steele was just about unknonw over here. I'd heard his name back when this video was made and was curious about what he sounded like, but I don't ever remember a recording of his getting played in the U.S.
