VIDEO OF THE WEEK: DAVID ESSEX – ‘GONNA MAKE YOU A STAR’

January 14, 2019

Though producer Jeff Wayne is best known for his work on the planet-straddling success of 1978’s ‘Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version Of War Of The Worlds’, he cut his production teeth working in partnership with singer David Essex.

Featuring a prominent and early use of the synthesizer, and coupled with Essex’s terrific voice and smouldering good looks, ‘Gonna Make You A Star’ gave them their first UK No. 1 single in November 1974.

You can see here why David Essex the ruled a big chunk of the 70s.
