Matt Monro: The Man With The Golden Voice (17 October 2007)
Neil Pearson narrates a documentary telling the story of Matt Monro, the young Londoner born Terry Parsons who became one of the world's most popular ballad singers. Contributors include Paul Gambaccini, Don Black, George Martin, John Barry and Monro's family.
The late, great Matt Monro is Britain's best and most successful balladeer and vocalist of all time, and Britain's most internationally-popular male singer, having sold over 100 million records worldwide.
Terry Parsons was born on 1st December 1930 in London. He was a bus driver and was singing jingles for soap commercials when the great producer George Martin asked him to 'help' on a Peter Sellers album. Matt Monro's velvety voice was finally recognised and he was signed to Parlophone and to George Martin ahead of The Beatles. Portrait Of My Love, From Russia With Love, Walk Away were all big hits, as was a cover of The Beatles' Yesterday. Other well-known tracks include Born Free, My Kind Of Girl & We're Gonna Change The World. Matt had a unique and remarkable voice, particularly so as he had never received any training and had learned his craft as a pub singer. He was able to not only hit the right notes but also to sustain and phrase seemingly effortlessly and with the quality of material he was able to attract he became a big name in all four corners of the world, even receiving the ultimate accolade from his hero Frank Sinatra that Monro was the best singer ever to come out of Britain. Matt recorded a lot of tracks in Spanish and was, and is, hugely popular in the Spanish-speaking world.
