Cliff Richard – The Artist

Sir Cliff Richard, OBE is a British pop singer, musician, performer, actor and philanthropist. Richard has sold more than 250 million records worldwide. He has total sales of over 21 million singles in the United Kingdom and is the third-top-selling artist in UK Singles Chart history, behind the Beatles and Elvis Presley. Cliff Richard was originally marketed as a rebellious rock and roll singer in the style of Little Richard and Elvis Presley. With his backing group, The Shadows, Richard dominated the British popular music scene in the pre-Beatles period of the late 1950s to early 1960s.

Travellin’ Light – The Song

Travellin’ Light is a UK No. 1 single recorded by Cliff Richard and The Shadows and released in 1959. It was the follow-up single to Richard’s first No. 1, “Living Doll” and remained at No. 1 for five weeks (one less than “Living Doll”). “Travellin’ Light” was also a Number 1 hit in Ireland and Norway, selling 1.59m copies worldwide. It was Richard’s last single of the 1950s and his first release after the Shadows had changed their name from the Drifters (so as to not conflict with the American band of the same name). The B-side, “Dynamite” also made the UK Singles Chart, peaking at No. 16.

The Camper Van – The Shape

This record has been modelled into the silhouette of a VW Camper van.  The Volkswagen Type 2, known officially (depending on body type) as the Transporter, Kombi or Microbus, or, informally, as the Bus (US) or Camper (UK), is a forward control light commercial vehicle introduced in 1950 by the German automaker Volkswagen as its second car model. Following – and initially deriving from – Volkswagen’s first model, the Type 1 (Beetle), it was given the factory designation Type 2. As one of the forerunners of the modern cargo and passenger vans, the Type 2 gave rise to forward control competitors in the United States in the 1960s, including the Ford Econoline, the Dodge A100, and the Chevrolet Corvair 95 Corvan, the latter adapting the rear-engine configuration of the Corvair car in the same manner in which the VW Type 2 adapted the Type 1 layout.
