Biografia

He had two Top Twenty hits in the UK Singles Chart in 1971 with “I Did What I Did For Maria”, which reached #2 and “Is This the Way to Amarillo”, which peaked at #18. He also had a minor hit with “Avenues & Alleyways” which reached #37, the theme to the television series The Protectors. His early songs were dramatic big-voiced numbers, many of which were written by Mitch Murray and Peter Callandar.

Album wise he recorded regularly throughout the seventies and made infrequent appearances on the charts. His album With Loving Feeling sold well boosted by the hit single “Is This The Way to Amarillo”. He recorded an album in America in 1973 with top producer Snuff Garrett which did little to stop his commercial slant. A live album followed which sold relatively better. But by the mid 1970s recorded work became rarer and stage work took preference.

He played the role of Magaldi on the original 1976 album recording of the musical Evita, and sought to represent the UK in the 1976 Eurovision Song Contest, with the song “The Queen of the Mardi Gras” but came third in the national contest to select an entrant, behind eventual contest winners Brotherhood of Man.

Although his popularity waned in his native England through most of the 1980s and 1990s, he maintained a successful singing career in continental Europe during this period. This was especially so in Germany, for example with four albums recorded with German producer Jack White, especially their first album collaboration Welcome To My Music, reaching no.
