Lloyd Price: Personality


In honour of Lloyd Price, who has died at 88, here is his second-biggest UK hit which reached No 9 in 1959. (The biggest was Stagger Lee, No 7 in 1958). Price wrote the lyrics of Personality with music by Harold Logan. It got to No 2 in the States.

This version by Anthony Newley got to No 6 in Britain the same year. I am quite a Newley fan but this is rubbish, especially when the Price version was available.
