The Perfect Collection: Ninety-Nine Essential Pop Singles # 59 P.J.Proby

While we're on the widescreen, and appropriately following Elvis in this particular series, here's P.J.Proby. Written by Goffin and King and produced by Jack Nitzsche who apparently fed him with marijuana to augment his performance, (according to a comment under the YouTube clip of this). This all came after public demands had been made for him to be expelled from the UK for allowing his trousers to split onstage in closely successive concerts in Croydon and Northampton. Those were different times! Most shockingly of all this great single stalled at Number 37.
