John Leyton: I Can't Keep On With This Sob Stuff

June Harris, Disc, 7 July 1962

WATCH OUT for John Leyton's next release. The change in style is going to hit you smack between the ears! Gone are the emotional lyrics which he employed in his four successive hits. Gone are the girl chorus and the sob approach. Present is a wild, up-tempo, swingy beat number, composed by Terry Gilkyson, and not like the others by Geoffrey Goddard.
