IF YOU CAN PUT THAT IN A BOTTLE (12") - JOHN DAVIDSON
John Davidson (born 13-12-1941) was an American singer and actor. John worked firstly on the Broadway stage. He was cast in many big shows in the 1960s working alongside many American superstars. John was also a TV game show host....the most widely known show he worked on was Hollywood Squares which in Oz was re-badged and called Celebrity Squares.
In 1967 John Davidson had a minor Oz hit with his version of "If You Can Put That In A Bottle" released on CBS records. Australian, Peter Doyle also had a competing version on Astor Records which did not chart - I am still hoping to find a copy of Peter's version.
Here for download is an extended Tom Mix version of "If You Can Put That In A Bottle":
The link above may be out of action but my extended 12" remix has been added to a video file on YouTube by an enterprising person that gave me no credit!
