A Little Bit of Heaven. 14. I'll Take You Home Again, Kathleen. 23. 24. Needless to say the tape has been long gone but the memory of the songs on this album has stayed with me all these years. John Gary had the most wonderfully clear voice. His range is amazing and every word is articulated with precision.
