A Collaborative / JL and Harv
Thanks Harv, I'd forgotten these guys from back in the day. We were so lucky to have grown up with the music of our era. It was rich with wonderful poetry and harmony, and we took it for granted. Good to know that we can now recover some of the sense of it and enjoy it again from the perspective of a lifetime of experiences. JL

In 1963 when Mike returned from active duty he asked if I had heard the song Sukiyaki. He said it was a big hit in Japan, all over Asia and was now his favorite song. It soon became a very big hit in the US.
Dahil Sa Iyo, although a beautiful song, was never as big as Sukiyaki . . . at least not in "my world" Actually while Sukiyaki sold 927,000 records . . Dahil Sa lyo sold 1,580,000.
Thanks for your help again Jerry!
Always nice working with you.
