Johnny Kidd &The Pirates - 25 Greatest Hits




Johnny Kidd and the Pirates were a British rock and roll group led by singer/songwriter Johnny Kidd (real name Frederick Heath).
They scored a few hit songs from the late 1950s to the late 1960s, and are remembered for appearing onstage in pirate costumes, complete with eye-patches. Though sometimes dismissed as a novelty act because of this gimmick, critic Bruce Eder describes the band as "underrated." NEXT:
