About this release

Val Doonican remains one of the nations’ favourite entertainers, with his warm, friendly and relaxed delivery, as seen during his Saturday night prime time TV show, The Val Doonican Show, which had a long and successful run on BBC Television for more than 20 years.

He easily blended a cocktail of traditional Irish songs, with his arrangements on pop music and covering easy listening and novelty songs, Val scored a dozen Top 40 hit singles, including five Top 10 hits – ‘Walk Tall’, ‘The Special Years’, ‘Elusive Butterfly’, ‘What Would I Be’ and ‘If The Whole World Stopped Loving’ – over a ten year period.

Val Doonican reached the Top 40 Albums Chart also on twelve occasions over a 44-year period, including five consecutive Top 10 albums in the 1960s.

This 60-track retrospective, “The Gold Collection”, includes all of the above, as well as ‘I’m Gonna Get There Somehow’ which amongst others, features in current and recent British TV commercials. A ‘must have’ heart-warming collection.
