Cliff Richard and the Shadows: Travellin’ Light


This was Cliff’s second No 1, the follow-up to Livin’ Doll. It was the first record after the Shadows changed their name from the Drifters to avoid confusion with the US singing group. It was written by Sid Tepper and Roy C Bennett, recorded on July 25, 1959 at the EMI Studios in London and released in October 1959.

This is a 1961 live performance. That sweater!

  1. It must have been unbearably hot wearing that under studio lights. They were made of sterner stuff in those days.
