After ‘Catch The Wind’ and ‘Colours’ charted in 1965, this projected English ‘answer’ to Bob Dylan lost impetus until he mined a seam of ‘sunshine’ pop with songs such as ‘Sunshine Superman’ – a US No. 1 – and ‘Jennifer Juniper’. After ‘Atlantis’ foundered in 1968’s UK Top 30, he bounced back briefly with ‘Goo Goo Barabajagal (Love Is Hot)’, a liaison with The Jeff Beck Group. Since then, only a 1990 comedy revival of ‘Jennifer Juniper’ (with Singing Corner) has been even a minor hit.
