Al Bowlly's Croon Manifesto
Arguably the first ever ‘pop star’, Al Bowlly had a rock and roll lifestyle before rock was invented. Like so many pop icons he lived fast and died young. The tender, expressive and intimate vocal style he championed marked a turning point in musical history and brought about an entire change of focus from bandleader to singer. An inspiration to generations of singers and artists, Al Bowlly’s songs have featured in the cult films Amelie, The Shining and Dennis Potter’s seminal Pennies From Heaven.
