Moon Martin : Bad Case of Loving You
Two songs from Moon Martin's 1978 Craig Leon produced debut became famous through covers. Willy DeVille recorded "Cadillac Walk" and of course, Robert Palmer took "Bad Case of Loving You " to U.S. #14 a year later. Thanks to the glasses and his songcraft, Martin got pegged with the "American Elvis Costello" label. A 1978 High Fidelity critics poll named Martin the #2 most promising new pop vocalist, behind Nick Lowe and ahead of 3rd place Carlene Carter.
