Relive the pre-radio presenter days of Jimmy Young when he was Britainís premier heart-throb crooner. Here is the best CD to cover those vintage years.

Leslie Young, otherwise Sir Jimmy Young (b.1923), is of course most famous for 'the JY Prog' and as a doyen of broadcasters for nearly four decades. Only those of us well into our late 60s or beyond are likely to remember personally his days as a heart-throb crooner. Yet he was indeed once one of Britainís greatest popular singers and he has an enviable chart history to prove it.

'Iíll Sing To You' is exactly what Jimmy Young does on this Retrospective release. Here are 30 of the best from the time when he was arguably Britainís no.1 male singer.

His earliest success was the appropriately named Nat King Cole cover Too Young. He also had success duetting with Petula Clark on Broken Heart, and with standards such as Because Of You. Moving to Decca, he broke into the charts with Faith Can Move Mountains before really hitting the big time and becoming the very first British artist to make No.1 with successive issues. These were The Man From Laramie and, before that, the immortal Unchained Melody.

But Jimmy made many more fine recordings too, such as the Top Ten hits Eternally, Chain Gang and More, and other memorable numbers such as Someone On Your Mind, Little Things Mean A Lot, You Belong To Me, Kiss Of Fire and Itís All In The Game.

Listen to Jimmy and feel young again!
