^That's very nice. Thanks!

^^ CRAZY-HORSE - it's funny you should mention Manfred Mann. Mike d'Abo - vocalist with MM before they became the Earth Band, celebrates his birthday today! Same year as Roger Daltry too - 1944. His was the voice on the very first release of "The Mighty Quinn" (which you probably already knew). He also wrote the single "Handbags and Gladrags" which Chris Farlowe and then Rod Stewart recorded. This is his own version of his song -

Karen Carpenter, born 02 March 1950. A great talent, gone far too soon; she referred to herself as a ‘drummer who sang’.

Originally written and released by Klaatu, the Carpenters made this song famous. I love it!
