Singer/ Songwriter 'Gilbert O'Sullivan' broke into the U.K Charts in 1970
with 'Nothing Rhymed'
He went on to grace the Charts in many countries including 'U.S' and 'Japan'

fourteen Top 40 successes, half of these being Top 10 entries, in 73' he registered
Two Number Ones, those being the 'enchanting' ''Clair' followed by ''Get Down''

'Matrimony' - 'We Will' - and my personal favourite - 'Alone Again (Naturally)
