Jeff Duff (or Geoff Duff as the spelling on this recording says) is a Theatrical singer from Melbourne who fronted numerous bands, most notably Kush before moving to Britain for ten years in 1978. There he recorded for the Beggars Banquet label, and had some success with his single, Give Me Back My Brain, from the album Duffo, recorded with the participation of guitarist Peter Green. This single recorded for Mushroom Records in 1977 reached #39 in Melbourne. The A-side a cover of the 1965 U.S. hit by The Knight Brothers was penned by James Leon Diggs and the B side penned by Geoff. Here to download is that single out of '77 with its B-side "Temptation's 'Bout To Get Me" b/w “Where Will I Be? (Tomorrow)" (K-6764)
