Kim Wilde's first records were written and produced by her father and brother, Marty and Ricky. The three of them have had a great influence on the music world, as this regular series 'Wilde World' shows.
Marty Wilde's career was - and still is - an impressive one, and sometimes it's discoveries like this that make you realize just how impressive. Together with Ronnie Scott, he wrote the moving ballad 'All I can say is goodbye', which was performed and recorded in 1968 by none other than Tom Jones. It appeared on his album 'Help yourself', which peaked at number 4 in the UK albums chart.
While Marty is best known for rock and roll, this particular song is an emotional ballad, performed in that typical Tom Jones way.
