Ricky Valance
Columbia DB 4592 - "Why Can't We" c/w "Fisherboy"
February 1962 Press Release (834 words)
Welsh-born male singer whose only hit (albeit a big one), "Tell Laura I Love Her", capitalised on Decca's hesitation in issuing the original American hit on RCA by Ray Peterson. This press release is a useful biography of a man who never claimed he derived his stage name from Ritchie Valens.
