GARRY MILLS
Comin' Down With Love
(Sid Tepper - Roy Bennett)
UK 1960
Later version

Single on Top Rank International (UK), June 1960.

You'll see his name misspelt as Gary Mills, but this is British singer Garry Mills, whose Look For A Star (1960), written by Tony Hatch as 'Mark Anthony', was a hit in the US (where, to add to the confusion, it was covered by Buzz Cason using the name Garry Miles).

See Judy Stone's I'll Step Down, another Tepper-Bennett song recorded by Garry Mills.
