Tony Christie’s musical heroes were not Faith and the other rock and rollers, but Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald who he had heard on his father’s collection of 78 records, and just like them he is an interpreter of other people’s songs, and not a recognised songwriter. Having established himself on the working men’s club circuit - a school of hard knocks - he was offered a job as the singer with a band, who also played the clubs . Later in 1971 his next single was ‘(Is This The Way To) Amarillo’, written by American, Neil Sedaka and surprisingly, it only made the lower reaches of the Top 20 in the UK, but was hit all over the world.
