and aural evidence of this assertion of Jeff's prowess can be found

Bob Rashkow:

essential question...what are we using as baseline value??..hard to answer
to be sure, may we open to members? (hey that wasn't s'posed to come across
that way!)

James F. Cassidy:

> (Ian Whitcomb) also earned instant Spectropop hero status for producing
> Mae West's rock 'n' roll album on Tower in the mid-'60s.

Demis Roussos was (and still is) an incredibly gifted singer. I've known him personally from the very beginning (I co-wrote one of the Aphrodite's early song). He could have done great things if he had been interested but I always had the feeling that he was just there for the money (unlike his pal Vangelis) and he did not really care. Bad management took him away from the success he had in the beginning. He now regularly gives concerts in churches. Frank -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
