Bring out the Clown,
This review is from: Silverbird & Just A Boy (Audio CD)
Now I know what you're going to say Leo Sayer? Disco songs? God-awful Ballads!
But for Sayers first two records, it was all very different.
Working as a song-writing team with David Courtney, Leo Sayer produced two original, eccentric, well-crafted pop albums.
From the Sparks-like "Telepath", to Roger Daltrey's debut single "Just a Boy", Sayer really did ruffle a few feathers of the pop establishment (Elton John was supposedly stunned by the arrival of this singer-songwriter from out of nowhere!)
Of course it didn't last, Sayer & Courtney went their separate ways, & Leo never came close to recreating the musical heights of "Songbird/Just a Boy", which makes these albums so special.
