Wilde About Marty/Showcase

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
Marty Wilde's legacy hasn't been treated as well as those of his contemporaries Cliff Richard and Billy Fury. All of Richard's albums and singles, and even a good measure of important outtakes, have appeared on CD, and Fury's early LPs and singles have been reissued in more than one multi-CD set.
