Mr. Lee Grant Kiwi superstar of the late sixties didn't make much of an impression here in OZ but was huge over there The Mr. may seem a bit pretentious but that was added to avoid confusion with a local actress with the same name. The album which I had never heard before was quite good .
A special thanks to Rex for sending me this album.
The opening track "Hava Nagilah" I thought was a strange choice until I read that he was born Bogdan Charis Kominowski to Polish parents on April 22 1945, in a Nazi concentration camp just outside Dusseldorf. His father was killed, but he and his mother survived and emigrated to New Zealand in 1949, settling in Palmerston North chilling stuff. The song "The Real Thing" not the Russell Morris hit is probably my Fave followed by the 2 Bee Gees covers Ronnie Burn's hit "Coalman" and the Bee Gee's first big hit "Spicks And Specks".
