Thanks for this gem Ozzie. I was priveliged enough to be his sound engineer back in the eighties when he came over he to Perth to perform at a Caberet night club called La Tenda in Victoria Park. La Tenda means big top (THE TENT).
He was such a gentle giant & i remember having dinner with him at my sisters place & he actually broke the toilet seat in pieces. What a fantastic man Ricky May was & is. Thanks for this download. Peter
