Single on W&G by popular rock’n’roll singer in the heart-throb mould, backed by The Tamlas. Merv Benton did especially well in his home town of Melbourne, where he had 15 charting records 1964-67, but retired from music after suffering disabling voice problems.
The writer credits on the single show Diane Lampert, better known professionally as Diane Charlotte Lampert (b. c.1925). The Billboard story (right) gives an overview of her career up till 1995.
Co-writer credit on the single is to Allison Dewar, clearly an alias of Graham Turnbull: their repertoires at BMI are identical.
Graham Turnbull (1931-2009) was a Canadian guitarist, singer and songwriter, full name Graham Morrison Turnbull. He was known as Scott Turner, also as Scotty Turner, Scott Turnbull or Graham Scotty Turnbull). He was an associate of Australian pop star Johnny O’Keefe who recorded some Turner/Turnbull songs in Los Angeles, notably the hits She’s My Baby and Don’t You Know Pretty Baby.
