Brook Benton - It's Just a Matter of Time 1959

5 mins United Kingdom

Brook Benton gives two outstanding performances in this 'Double-A' pop promo from 1959. First up is Benton's million-selling ballad, 'It's Just a Matter of Time', which spent nine weeks on top of Billboards R&B charts and became a country & western standard in the 1970s. With slightly heavy-handed wit, Brook is filmed in front of an assortment of clocks. That's followed by the rock'n'roll flipside 'Hurtin' Inside', with Brook rocking out in the gym.
