Jerry Keller

Jerry Keller This guy kicked around a bit as a songwriter behind the scenes, but as a recording artist he was a genuine one hit wonder. I got this from a single re-issue, with some other artist on the B side.

Jerry Keller:

Here Comes Summer – It’s all about anticipation - how’s it gonna be, how much fun we’ll have. And with summer, you can list all the activities, and he does, but the real joy is in the ambience, the smells, the feel of a warm summer night. This song was one of the earliest summer anthems, and one of the most underappreciated, though The Dave Clark Five did a cover. It’s quite laid back, though the tempo is not slow, and it bespeaks a kind of languidness of hot days.. From the summer (of course) of 1959.
