@groundswell - re Dire Straits I like em too GS . Saw them in concert in Brisbane. Great show.

Was that the ‘ brothers in arms ‘ tour ? That was such a special concept in Brisbane, full moon , crystal clear night with every star shining , one of the best concerts I’ve seen.

Imagine a world where the best tune smiths fly under the radar.
The singer goes from band to band becoming more obscure as he goes.
Everyone sings his songs but none ever care to pin up his poster!
Yet, there he stands in plain sight...centre of attention...How is it so?

Thanks to seeds & swellnet we can out this Chameleon!
We're not alone....On one of these tracks...re: YouTube comments > punter also reveals the master!
He is known to those who enjoy each of these tunes...which is pretty easy as they're high rotation.
Guess this Musical Artist deserves a dedication...Salute to the master of Groovy Tunes.

UK Psychedelic Flower Power Band (re: 2 Deep Purple members in the touring band)
tbb is cuing this tune to show Tony's range & background > ( UK / SoCal Beach Boys / Flower Power)
Can hear : Bee Gees / US Pet Sounds Harmonies meets prog lush Moody Blues layering...
Note: This song is not catchy as such...more so a respected singalong!

1967 The Flower Pot Men ~ Lets Go to San Francisco

1970 Flower Pot Men Singer Tony Burrows charted worldwide hits with 4 different groups
Some of his original Flower pot Men appear alongside Tony as he digs in his infectious hooks!
It's the high quality nature of these embarrassing hooks that wins over the listener...none will feel dirty!
The tunes are cleverly crafted & instantly infectious...resistance is futile!

1970 White Plains ~ My Baby Loves Lovin

1970 Edison Lighthouse ~ Love Grows

1970 The Pipkins ~ Gimme Dat Ding

1974 First Class ~ Beach Baby

Salute to Tony Burrows
Classic string of catchy hits that deserve attention all these years later!

Yeah, special concert.

Some old school breakdance battles and earliest Ice T footage I’ve seen. Bit of Turbo from the old breakdance movies in there too.

I love it. Great song but it’s a bit delusional. The English never took land that wasn’t theirs. Except that time they broke up those terra nullius wars. Bless ‘em

The Melbourne version not such a singer. More just a “I’ll wing ya carnt” No criminal history! Must have been the Rebel’s pastor. I’m glad Lidia might be nearly a badged member. Such good she can do for the trees then. Amazing?
Facetious off course!!

wow so much amazing talent!! Dean Martin, the Stones!

Have to put this in here, the final cut by Pink Floyd.

Around 20 years ago, when me and some close mates where baking a cake in the middle of knowhere in NZ, a case of aged whiskey and some good tunes, it was bliss! Not a phone anywhere!
