He Did It Otway

John Otway is generally thought of - if thought of at all - as a novelty act. Which is grossly unfair, as he has written some lovely songs over the years. Here are a couple of examples; the first very seasonal, the second about a different season altogether.

"Middle Of Winter" - John Otway

"Josephine" - John Otway & Wild Willy Barrett

Today's clip marks the sad passing of Trevor Ward-Davies, better known as Dozy from Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich. I can only concur with everything Pete Murray says.

  1. I totally agree with your assessment of John Otway, though in latter years he's definitely chased the 'novelty hit' dollar.
    Sad news about Trevor Ward-Davies. 'The Legend of Xanadu' by DDDBM&T is one of my earliest TOTP memories.
