Leo Sayer performs 2 hits that he wrote for other people, circa 1974 ... GOLDEN.

Before the dorky 'fro, and lame (albeit catchy) mid 1970's singles, and appearing with Muppets and such ... here's Leo doing a couple early tunes from his repertoire that he wrote ... that others made hits out of.

I love his performances of these two ... Straight-up Youtube GEMS right here ... if you don't like at first, listen a couple times ... cause these are earworms I'm tellin' ya.

The Show Must Go On (hit for Three Dog Night)


One Man Band (hit for Roger Daltrey)

2. Absolute worst concert I ever attended

There was hostility between him and the audience at the end of his 45 minute set. Many had already walked out by then.
This would have probably been 1971 or so.

3. Bummer ... never said I was a Sayer fan but I love these two songs ...

And the performances quite entertaining ... to me anyway.

4. I know "One Man Band" as a Three Dog Night song.

One of my favorites of their many many hits.

5. Then apparently they covered Roger Daltrey doing a Sayer-penned song ;)

Guess they liked his work as they covered the other song as well ... their's is the version most people know (if they know the tune).

Edit: Errr wait ... totally different song. lol ...
