Sir Cliff clocks up album century

Sir Cliff Richard has announced his landmark 100th album.

The singer, 72, is set to release The Fabulous Rock 'n' Roll Songbook in November.

Described as a tribute to the likes of Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Little Richard and Buddy Holly, the album was recorded at the Blackbird Studio and The Parlor in Nashville, Tennessee.

The Summer Holiday and Living Doll singer had his first hit in 1958 and released his debut album Cliff a year later.

Since then, he has since released 46 studio albums, seven soundtracks, 35 compilations and 11 livealbums.

Sir Cliff said of the recording the album: "It was like being back in the 50s with The Shadows in Studio 2 at Abbey Road - only it wasn't The Shadows, and it wasn't Studio 2 and it wasn't the 50s."

He added: "This was my chance to pay tribute not only to, in my humble opinion, one of the greatest advances in musical history, but also the artists who took rock 'n' roll to the top of the charts world-wide.

"As with all great art forms, rock 'n' roll did not stand still and there have been some phenomenal changes, bringing it to where we are now.

"All I know is that 'in the beginning' what kicked the whole thing off was the fabulous rock 'n' roll songbook.

"That whole period was new and unbelievably exciting, and to think that I was there!! Saving up my pocket money for weeks so that I could buy Elvis's first album - borrowing someone else's collection of Little Richard (my name in part, was a tribute to him) and skipping school so as to get seats to see Bill Haley play live."
