Dauphy and I are always happy to do requests. Our friend John Malone in Australia asked if we would pen a verse or two about Long John Baldry, and we are pleased to oblige. John Malone has a great website, well worth a visit if you haven’t already. Here is a link: https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/94290691
Long John Baldry was an English-Canadian blues singer who was the front man for many bands involving famous singers such as Rod Stewart and Elton John. He reached number one in the UK in 1967 with Let the heartaches begin and a duet with Kathi McDonald, You’ve lost that lovin’ feelin’, reached number two in Australia in 1980. He died in Canada in 2005.
Long John Baldry Let the heartaches begin Long, his talents have flown He played for The Beatles And sang with The Stones. Christened John Willy We need not harp on No need of a wordsmith To make this Long John.
