Cool Touch is a 1990 album, recorded by the English singer-songwriter, Leo Sayer. It was only released in the United Kingdom, Australia and Germany. It was his first album release since 1983’s Have you ever been in Love.
Sayer began his music career co-writing songs with David Courtney, including “Giving It All Away“, which gave Roger Daltrey of the Who his first solo hit in 1973. The same year, Sayer began his career as a recording artist under the management of Adam Faith, who signed Sayer to the Chrysalis label in the United Kingdom and Warner Bros. Records in the United States.
His debut single, “Why Is Everybody Going Home”, failed to chart, but he achieved national prominence in the United Kingdom with his second single, the music hall styled song “The Show Must Go On“, which Sayer performed on British television wearing a clown costume and makeup. The single went to No. 2 on the United Kingdom singles chart, as did his debut album, Silverbird, co-written with David Courtney who also co-produced the album with Adam Faith. Three Dog Night‘s cover, the group’s last Billboard Hot 100 top 10 record, reached No. 4 on 25 May 1974.
His subsequent singles were all major hits in the United Kingdom – “One Man Band” went to No. 6 in 1974, “Long Tall Glasses” (UK No. 4, 1974) became his first Top Ten hit in the United States, reaching No. 9 and “Moonlighting” went to No. 2 in the United Kingdom in 1975. In 1976, Sayer recorded three Beatles‘ songs, “I Am the Walrus“, “Let It Be” and “The Long and Winding Road“, for the Beatles-themed concept film All This and World War II. His albums in this period were also consistently successful in the United Kingdom: he scored five consecutive Top 10 placings on the United Kingdom album chart between 1973 and 1977. source wikipedia
