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:

Everyone who knows the blog "Old Melodies" or earlier "Wings of Dream" for many years,knows that there are large archives of music here since 2007 ... 98% of the links up to 2015 are dead. I will gradually be engaged in their recovery. This takes a very long time, so the answers to requests will be minimal and in no way will be accepted from anonymous users. I spend a very long time on my uploads. Please,find a couple of seconds to sign your comment or message. I hope for understanding...
