I've already written about Nick Lampe and Flower Garden in detail so I won't go over old ground. In fact, a Google search for "Nick Lampe" will usually give you this very blog at the top of the results.

Robert Thompson, Australia's no, the world's most dedicated Nick Lampe fan, has alerted me to a rare video of Flower Garden, at YouTube.No longer available 11/08. See here for substitute. Update 06/09: The video of Nick has reappeared here, but the previous "slideshow" version has better quality audio.

Flower Garden was a #1 song in Grand Rapids MI in the summer of 1970, and my personal favorite song of all time. Nick if you can read this post, concact me I'd love to hear from you. Uncleboo007@sbcglobal.net. Thanks
