It seems that a trend has caught on for music stars to release albums beyond the grave.

It seems that a trend has caught on for music stars to release albums beyond the grave.

First Amy Winehouse’s family announced they are putting out a Christmas album of previously unheard material from the Camden singer, and now it seems that West Hampstead rock and roll legend Billy Fury is following suit.

An album of ‘lost’ material by the rock star, who recorded regularly at Decca Studios on Broadhurst Gardens and was recently honoured with a mural in West End Lane, has been put out.

His record label, EMI, had been unable to find the master taped of Fury’s final dozen songs.

But the rare tracks have now been unearthed.

What better tribute to both these stars than to storm the charts once again?
