Study - Roger James Cooke

Study
The writer of I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing, You’ve Got Your Troubles, Softly Whispering I Love You, Doctors Orders, Talking In Your Sleep amongst very many hits, recorded as a solo artist in the early 70’s.
During the 60’s songwriters Roger Cook and Roger Greenaway scored international hits as alter ego’s David & Jonathan. These were produced by George Martin’s AIR (London) Productions Company , and subsequently Roger Cook maintained his association for three solo albums.
STUDY was Cook’s debut in 1970 and originally released through EMI’s Columbia label. The LP was predated by three singles from 1968 and 1969, all here, and as a further bonus we have another three singles released during 1970 and 1971.
Highlights on the collection include two stunning duets with future New Seeker Eve Graham. Also the first recorded version of Elton John’s Skyline Pigeon, a single for Cook in 1968 when he bought the song publishing.
All give rein to Cook’s expressive vocals, and he chose songs by Jerry Lordan, Hammond & Hazlewood, George Harrison as well as the Cook & Greenaway catalogue to showcase his style.
This is the first time all these recordings have been reissued, and a first time for all on CD.
