Adam Faith – Singles

The Lost Tracks

The following songs were sung by Adam ‘live’ on BBC’s Drumbeat series in 1959. Only one of the shows was pre-recorded (and there is not much chance of that having survived) so unless anybody recorded the shows onto a tape-recorder, it’s unlikely they will ever be heard again.

There were also many ‘live’ radio performances, but the vast majority of these were after Adam became famous and so were versions of his hit records.
