I so agree. I was just having lunch at a restaurant in San Francisco and heard the beautiful song When I give my love to you being played. It so took me back. What a beautiful talent and writer.

From the first time that I listen to Michael in 1976, there is no smoother lyricist vocalist who can compare to Michael Franks, he stands all alone in his artistry of music and words.
