    The BGO CD reissue of two 1963 albums, the live We Want Billy! and the studio Billy, presents a pair of unenduring sets. Fury may have been one of the best of the pre-Beatle rockers, but that doesn't make him great. About half of the "concert" date consists of rock & roll oldies like "Sweet Little Sixteen" and "Unchain My Heart," sung in a competent sub-Elvis mold (though the Tornados aren't about to make anyone forget Scotty Moore or James Burton). There's also a lengthy medley of many of his early-'60s pop hits, which are better heard in their studio versions. The studio record Billy was Fury's biggest-selling album of the '60s, reaching the British Top Ten. But it wasn't very good, typifying the kind of teen idol fare that rode high on the British charts before Merseybeat. He could rock half decently when given the chance, but most of the numbers are pop ballads, replete with light orchestration and crooning female backup vocals. These records have little more than nostalgic value, and not even that for American listeners, who were never aware of Fury in the first place. ~ Richie Unterberger
