Originally released in 1959 and 1960 respectively on the Philips record labelMarty Wilde was born Leonard Reginald Smith in Greenwich, London, on April 15, 1939. He was a Larry Parnes discovery - hewas spotted, aged 19, performing at the Condor Club, London. His first record, Honeycomb, was un-noticed, but his next, Endless Sleep(included here), was an instant success. Bad Boy,which he wrote, was another big hit in 1959, although like Billy Fury, Marty never had a Number One recordMost Billy Fury fans associate Marty with the package tour that played at the Birkenhead Essoldo on 1st October, 1958, when inan event that became show business legend, young Ron Wycherley called to play some of his songs for Marty and LarryParnes and found himself thrust on stage. Marty is one of the rock and roll era's great survivors. He has worked all over the world, and in the new millennium, he is stillgoing strongMarty is (in case you didn't know!!) Kim Wilde's father
