Leo Sayer formed "TerraPlane Blues Band" in the late sixties, and "Patches" in the early seventies. Patches was brought to producer  Adam Faith with hopes of securing a contract. Faith didn't like the group, but offered Leo a solo contract.

Sayer wrote and recorded "The Show Must Go On" which was covered by Three Dog Night. He later released "One Man Band," and "Long Tall Glasses" which eventually sold millions. He later came out with "More Than I Can Say," which became a huge, but final hit in America for Leo Sayer.
