• John LEYTON - Johnny Remember Me

Singing actor John Leyton (Biggles, The Great Escape, Guns At Batasi, Von Ryan's Express, Jericho, Krakatoa East Of Java, etc.) topped the charts for 4-weeks in the summer of 1961 with the haunting, dramatic, ethereal 'Johnny Remember Me', a song written by Geoffrey Goddard, arranged by Charles Blackwell, and produced by legendary maverick indie producer, Joe Meek.

The same team collaborated on John's subsequent hits 'Wild Wind', 'Son This Is She', 'Lone Rider' and 'Lonely City', and standout album tracks like 'Oh Lover' and 'Voodoo Woman'.

Meek had also earlier produced Leyton's cover version of the controversial death disc 'Tell Laura I Love Her', which became the hit version in Scandinavia despite missing out in the UK.

This 32-track compilation comprises all his recordings between 1960-62, featuring nine singles, his fiercely collectable first LP, 'The Two Sides of John Leyton', and a couple of collectors' rarities, including his cancelled debut single 'Three Cute Chicks'.

Nowadays, John is a much-loved regular on the 60s/nostalgia circuit, touring alongside contemporaries like, Marty Wilde, Eden Kane, Joe Brown, etc.
