Pop icon Cliff Richard set to return with rock 'n' roll album

ON THE new album by Cliff Richard, the singing star will be duetting with his hero Elvis Presley. Featured on Sir Cliff's new album 'Just. Fabulous Rock 'n' Roll' is a version of "Blue Suede Shoes" which sees Elvis' vocals added to a new version of the song recorded by Cliff. The duet has been endorsed by the Presley estate and follows similar posthumous collaborations with Susan Boyle and Barbara Streisand. The new album was recorded at Blackbird Studio in Nashville and features Cliff singing songs originally recorded by Chuck Berry, John Lee Hooker, Jerry Lee Lewis, Smiley Lewis and Sam Cooke as well as a new version of Cliff's first number one hit "Move It". Cliff reported that the album represents a "happy, creative and in many ways an innocent time. I find it hard to believe that my career has spanned this length of time and I still get the chance to do the thing I love best - to get into a studio." It will be the veteran's 101st album. CR
