Robert Earl

Robert Earl was one of the top British popular tenors of the Fifties and Sixties. He combined a career in touring variety - appearing in the top theatres throughout the UK - with a successful recording career. His rich golden tenor voice thrilled live audiences for 20 years. He was no "one hit wonder" - it took 5 years of recording with Philips before his first hit "I may Never Pass This Way Again" reached the charts. After retiring from professional singing in 1970 he spent much of his time doing work for charity as a member of the Grand Order of Water Rats.Robert is probably the last living survivor of those great singers of that era. Today some of his fans still remain keenly loyal to this great star of the fifties and sixties. The lady who began his fan club in 1956 would still love to hear from anyone about their memories of Robert Earl - and will answer any questions about his career recordings [Fan club sec is Joan Smith, 78 Willowbank Avenue, Blackpool FY4 3ND]. Today - 2011 - Robert is retired in Florida - and many of his fans of old will be delighted to know that he still sings on special occasions, although he has never sung professionally since 1970. His son, also Robert Earl, will be known to many today as the founder of the Planet Hollywood organisation.
