  1. I'm almost ashamed to admit it, but I wasn't familiar with him or his work. Judging by how many songs you posted, you must have really been a big fan. After listening to several of them, I can see why.

  2. Sigh. He really was a supremely talented man. And decorative with it.

  3. A lovely tribute to an artist you obviously loved and respected.

  4. fishducky; all of them favourites of mine :)

    Susan; he was a British-born Australian, so probably didn't get a lot of air time in America; he was an actor and a producer too.
    These are just a few of his many songs. I've been a fan since I first saw a picture in a magazine way back in the late sixties.

    Elephant's Child; very decorative :D and talented at everything he tried.

    Lee; Thank you. I wanted to put up so many more songs and photos too, but I think this will be enough.
