Johnny Remember Me-ek

Johnny Remember Me-ek

John Leyton is a singer and actor known for his hit song ‘Johnny Remember Me’, which was produced by Joe Meek and reached No. 1 in the UK Chart in 1961, despite being banned by the BBC at the time for being a so-called ‘death disc’. John was also famous for his acting, appearing in films such as The Great Escape. Cherry Red are now the proud custodians of Leyton’s repertoire, which includes many unreleased tracks that were also produced by Meek. A multi-CD box set is due to follow this autumn.
