Keep On Running

Written and first recorded by Jackie Edwards (1965).
Hit version by The Spencer Davis Group (US #76/UK #1 1965).
Re-recorded by Jackie Edwards (1976).

From the wiki: “‘Keep on Running’ was written and first recorded by Jackie Edwards, which became a #1 UK hit when recorded by The Spencer Davis Group. Edwards recorded his original version while working in the UK for Island Records as a songwriter. It first appeared on his 1965 album Come on Home, and was later re-recorded by Edwards again in the mid-1970s for his Do You Believe In Love album. Strongly influenced by Nat King Cole, Edwards began performing at the age of 14. He came to the attention of Chris Blackwell in 1959 after scoring four #1 singles in Jamaica between 1960 and 1961. When Blackwell set up Island Records in London in 1962 Edwards followed him, working as a singer and songwriter for Island, recording as a solo artist and also duets with Millie Small (‘My Boy Lollipop‘), and delivering records to stores.
