Total agreement Abby - He was a great singing 'hero' of mine back in the early 60s. He is actually a Glasgow man, though, who moved to London and helped start the 'Critics Group' with Ewan and Peggy. Of course, he got together there with Bobby Campbell and Gordon McCulloch to form 'The Exiles'- they made three very influential albums. I have the 45 rpm EP of Enoch which has Gaberlunzie Man, Butcher's Boy etc. I've never heard anyone else with that husky depth in their voice, except possibly Ian Manuel.
