“I never get tired of hearing Summer Song. Decades pass, but quality never diminishes or fades. ‘The cold metallic landscape will freeze itself away, but not before I’ve handed in my see through mask, and get in beyond today.’ Master class!”
-- Kenneth Clarke
"I have waited since ‘71 to talk with you. Your only competitor for me is the late Nick Drake who died in 1974. Summer Song sounded so full of Christian spirituality, so full of leaves and sun-dappled woods and fields, it just seemed to weave its way through the trees and grass into my soul. Thank you dear artist.”
