Sounds Retro Duo – Harmony Classic Hits
Tony Christie is best known for his recording of Is This the Way to Amarillo, a double UK chart success. In 2002, “Is This the Way to Amarillo” was used in the TV comedy series Peter Kay’s Phoenix Nights, leading to a resurgence in his popularity. The song was re-released on 14 March 2005 to raise money for the Comic Relief charity and reached Number 1 in the UK Singles Chart (outselling all the first release’s chart run put together).
This led to the biggest sales for a Number 1 single for the whole year, with seven weeks at the chart pinnacle. It also became the longest running chart-topper since Cher’s “Believe”, almost seven years earlier. The single was credited as “featuring Peter Kay”, though Kay only appeared in the video; the audio track was the original 1971 issue. His album The Definitive Collection also climbed to the Number 1 spot the following week in the UK Albums Chart, breaking records when it also came in at Number 1 on the downloads chart. (Wikipedia).
Bear in mind their new show – a tribute to the sounds of The Everly Brothers – The Everlee Brothers (Elderly Brothers) – a one hour show.
