More Info:

Cardiff-born Maureen Evans was perhaps the most famous singer who recorded for EMBASSY RECORDS, the Woolworths-only budget record label. Many of her Embassy covers outsold the original hit versions, notably on songs like 'Stupid Cupid', 'Born Too Late', 'Goodbye, Jimmy, Goodbye', 'Lipstick On Your Collar', and 'Plenty Good Lovin'. She subsequently recorded for Embassy's parent label, Oriole, registering with sides like 'The Big Hurt', 'Love, Kisses And Heartaches', 'Paper Roses', 'Never In A Million Years' and her 1962 worldwide, million-selling hit 'Like I Do'. This compilation presents the very?best of Maureen's Embassy and Oriole releases between 1958-62 and includes all her hits and important releases, alongside a handful of collectors' rarities. Several of these sides are difficult to find elsewhere on CD, while a half-dozen or so have never previously been reissued, in any format.
