"Living Doll" was used in Richard's début film Serious Charge, but it was arranged as a country standard, rather than a rock and roll standard. They became contractually separate from Richard, and the group received no royalties for records backing Richard.In 1959, the Shadows (then still the Drifters) landed an EMI recording contract of their own, for independent recordings.

The name Cliff was adopted as it sounded like "cliff face", which suggested "Rock".

It was "Move It" writer Ian Samwell who suggested the surname "Richard" as a tribute to Webb's musical hero Little Richard.

Before their first large-scale appearance, at the Regal Ballroom in Ripley, Derbyshire in 1958, they adopted the name "Cliff Richard and the Drifters".

The four members were Harry Webb (now going under the stage name "Cliff Richard"), Ian "Sammy" Samwell on guitar, Terry Smart on drums and Norman Mitham on guitar.

There are various stories about why the A-side was replaced by the intended B-side.

One is that Norrie Paramor's young daughter raved about the B-side; another was that influential TV producer Jack Good, who used the act for his TV show Oh Boy!

He has had more than 130 singles, albums and EPs make the UK Top 20, more than any other artist.

Richard has never achieved the same impact in the United States despite eight US Top 40 singles, including the million-selling "Devil Woman" and "We Don't Talk Anymore".

Harry Webb attended a local primary school, Stanley Park Juniors, in Carshalton.
