After Smile, I hitched a ride on a passing comet, and crossed into a parallel world.

First stop I recorded the single ‘Don’t You Be Too Long’ b/w ‘All Right ‘Till Then’, with Jonathan Kelly and Colin Peterson from the Bee Gees for the band Humpy Bong both JK songs.

After that the band Morgan with Morgan Fisher & Maurice Bacon from the Love Affair. We recorded two albums in Rome, ‘Nova Solis’ and ‘The Sleeper Wakes’, both available on Apple Music, Amazon & Spotify.

Later in the ‘seventies I formed the band Tailfeather with Richard Lightman, who I was later to work with on ‘aMIGO’ and ‘Two Late’ – I recorded a slightly maverick treatment of Jim Webb’s ‘By the Time I get to Phoenix’, and it was during this time that I wrote ‘Stray’ and co-wrote ‘Country Life’ with Richard.

The lady heard on ‘Have Faith in Your Love’ is the late Annie Mercer – alas - no longer with us.

The two final tracks are from the single which was Tailfeather's only public release.

This was the sum total of my recordings in the seventies, unless you count the many demos I did in Dick James Studios in New Oxford Street. Alas, all lost now – except for one song which I am going to record on the ‘No Margin’ Cd, later this year…

Tracks 1, 2, 8 and 9 kindly retouched by Svyatoslav Dementyev.

I was the original lead singer with pre-Queen trio Smile, alongside Brian May and Roger Taylor.

My solo albums 'aMIGO' and 'Two Late' are available here, along with some merchandise featuring the Smile logo which I designed in 1968.

My third album 'No Margin' will be recorded in early 2020.
