Thinking his career was all over Neil came to Britain in the 1970's to perform his old 60's hits at working mens clubs.He started to feature a few new songs and it was Elton John who picked up on just how good some of them were.
Songs such as Solitaire,Laughter in the Rain,The Immagrant and many more.
