New "oldie" cover: Mike Berry & The Crickets

Take a British oldies singer, whose first recording success was in 1961 with the UK #24 single "Tribute to Buddy Holly," pair him with Holly's '50s band The Crickets to record an album of their favorites, and you get yet another version of the oft-covered Don't Think Twice, It's All Right. Mike Berry (not to be confused with UK '60s singer Dave Berry) also had several hits in the 1980s. Fans of the British BBC sitcom Are you Being Served? (seen on PBS in the US) will recognize Berry as Mr. Spooner, from the final years of the program. Berry & The Crickets have long planned to record together, and finally About Time Too! was recorded in Tennessee during November 2004, released in the UK in 2005 and now available in the US.
