Post 222 - Richard Kaal - Lesser Folk / Yesterday Hey

In 1970 Richard Kaal joined the cast of "Hair", for twelve months, then joined "Jesus Christ Superstar" playing an apostle, understudy Simon, then understudy Jesus for a further eighteen months. Richard recorded with E.M.I. in 1970 and 1971 as a singer/songwriter, unfortunately airplay was very limited so he left in 1972. After playing in bands ranging from a ten piece called Nine Stage Horizon in Sydney, to a duo called Moondyne in Perth. Richard has been involved in music from the age of six, learning violin for ten years, after which he began playing guitar and singing. Here to download is his single from 1972 on H.M.V. Records "Lesser Folk" b/w "Yesterday Hey" (EA-9974). The A side was written by Brian Cadd & Don Mudie and the B side penned by Richard, the single was produced by Rod Coe. Richard gained a keen interest in sailing, buying, repairing and updating his boats. He finally bought 'Cadenza', a 36 foot Van de Stadt yawl, which he restored, lived on and sailed extensively with PA system on board. He is presently building a house, retreat and studio high in a mountain in Bali (Gunung Batukaru) to be more involved in his quest to study the music of Bali.
