This page contains recordings of popular singers – those who did not record in the classical tradition.

Peter Miles, not to be confused with the British actor of the same name (as I previously did), was, in fact, Henry Miles, who won ITV’s “Find the Singer” contest in 1958, aged 24. The prize was £100 and a recording contract with Columbia. Miles wrote “My Little Girl”, and sang it throughout the contest. Miles sings these songs charmingly in a lovely falsetto.
