    I actually have mixed feelings about this one, for reasons personal to me.

    A very good friend was trying to expand his musical horizons and I was compiling a Sprouts tape for him, and a third party handed him this Walk On single. And he didn't like it at all, and his mind was set.

    I'm thinking, if he had heard "Appetite" or something first, he could've been persuaded to give Paddy more of a chance.

    Paddy’s masterpiece is Jordan: The Comeback. A shining example of brilliant songwriting.

    Absolutely.

    Paddy is going to be spoken about, in tones of reverence, by listeners 100 years from now. When other artists who sold many more records, will be totally forgotten.
