Nice, Jon - saw this in the other thread asking for help with the song and I've been fixated on the idea of doing this myself ever since. I'd completely forgotten this little tune, but it's perfect for the uke.

Thanks for listening, M. Yeah, saw that thread yesterday morning too and sorta cooked up this rough shot in only a few mins. Will spend some more time on it and smooth out the edges a little at some point. Really loved this as a young fellow growing up in the 70s...it's etched in my brain somehow as my mum and dad used to flog Richard Clayderman's version of it. Hope to hear your take on it one day.

Very nicely played Jon!

Frank Mills did real well out of this song.
In 1995 I lived in Canada (Kamloops) for a year.
Frank did a Christmas show in Kamloops and I actually sang in his back up group made of about a dozen local choristers.

I wonder if he is still touring?
