Musically, the charts still reflected a wide range of tastes, with Shirley Bassey, Matt Monro, Frankie Vaughan and Andy Stewart slugging it out with US acts such as Elvis, The Drifters, the Everlys and Bobby Vee. Jazz was well represented with Acker Bilk, The Temperance Seven, Kenny Ball, Cleo Laine and Johnny Dankworth. The ever popular Lonnie Donnegan was still knocking out the hits and Cliff Richard, Billy Fury and Adam Faith continued to cause female teenage hearts to flutter, while 14 year old singing sensation Helen Shapiro had two number 1 singles. In the US, Motown had their first million selling single with "Shop Around" by The Miracles. It would be another six years before the name was changed to Smokey Robinson and the Miracles.
