Daniel Boone was British pop singer/songwriter Peter Lee Sterling who had an international hit in 1972 with his Beautiful Sunday LP. “Daddy Don’t You Walk So Fast,”  composed by Peter Callander and Geoff Stephens,  was from this album.

While Boone’s version of the song climbed the charts Wayne Newton covered the song for the very first single release on his new record label — Chelsea.  Newton was the very first artist signed to the new label owned by Wes Farrell.

“Daddy Don’t You Walk So Fast” was the biggest hit of Newton’s career.  The single charted #3 Adult Contemporary, #4 Pop and # 55 Country.  I heard it often on radio and it was a favorite of mine. The hook is quite catchy … don’t you agree? Newton’s voice is like no other and the piano playing on the track is awesome IMHO.

Enjoy this video of Newton performing his classic hit live in 1972 while it lasts on YouTube.

Musically Yours,
