Single on Festival. This was the B-side to My
Released 1959, charted January 1960.
First single and hit by Sydney rock'n'roll singer and songwriter Warren Williams (b. 1940), who first
performed with his band The Squares early in 1958. He had several charting singles in the first half
of the 60s (especially in Sydney), initially with The Squares but mainly as a solo artist.
He was regularly seen on TV pop shows, including Six O'Clock Rock and Bandstand.
On record, Warren Williams often moved away from rock'n'roll. In 1962 he released an EP, Warren Williams Sings Famous Tenor Solos (see A Star Fell From Heaven, Pedro The Fisherman and Girls Were Made To Love And Kiss). As a youngster he had begun singing in a church choir, and he appeared as a choirboy in the 1953 film Wherever She Goes.
