David Essex was something of a one-hit wonder in America, reaching the Top Five with the gold single "Rock On" inbut he was one of Britain's top teen-idol sensations and later graduated to an acting career in both theater and film. Essex began his musical career playing drums for an amateur band called the Everons and switched to singing during the mid-'60s, recording a series of unsuccessful singles. Theater columnist Derek Bowman became Essex's manager; while Essex took vocal and dance lessons, Bowman secured the lead part in a production of Godspell for him.

You might find our gradings are lower than our competitors - that's because if a record looks fantastic but plays terribly we will grade it low on the scale, whereas others may grade it very highly because visually they look good. For that reason, when we grade records equivalently they actually sound the same, so you know exactly what to expect. We're so confident of our grading process that we offer free returns for any reason.
