One of the most underrated musicians of the last god knows how many years, as far as I'm concerned. Brilliant lyricist +talented guitarist. He's sort of been ignored partly because he never really wanted to be famous and partly because his Yorkshire Jacques Brel thing wasn't really relevant in the 60s, and he spent most of his career teaching in France.
Here's his best song, and it's perfect.
One of the best love songs in the language, really.
