English singer/songwriter and producer with Gibraltarian ties. Also known per other hits such as It never rains in southern California, I'm a train, The free electric band, but these I considered a bit too mellowy for Outlaw Mike's Music Box.
OK, The Walker Brothers last week were mellowy too, but we can look over that because of Scott Walker's impressive baritone.
In 1979, the Nick Straker Band, from London, had a huge hit with A Walk in the Park.
Fusion pop group around Nick Straker. After "A walk in..." they had some minor succes in the States in 1981, with 'A little bit of Jazz', and that was it about. The above bozos are an outfit called The Conways, but the music seems to be the original Nick Straker version.
