I had been hoping at some point to find that song on CD. I've never heard it, but was aware it a popular song for him.

Unfortunately, Cozy's solo work isn't always easy to come by on CD, at least here in the states. I've never seen The Man In Black on CD, but maybe someone can point me to it if it exists.

His four solo CD's from the 80's and 90's are excellent. (Over The Top, Tilt, Octopuss & The Drums Are Back.) Primarily instrumental, Cozy had no problems bringing in some all-stars to guest on his albums.

I think the Forcefield albums are less well-known. In particular, The Talisman with Tony Martin is my favorite. This one is mostly vocal songs, but the instrumentals are killers.

Then there was Especially For You which was a vocal album released shortly after his death. It took a while to get into, but I really like that one as well.

And don't forget Bedlam (mentioned earlier), Bedlam Anthology and Big Bertha. I don't like Big Bertha, but I'm still happy it was released just to get some more of Cozy on CD.

I also have a CD called The Cozy Tapes which has some live stuff and probably one of my favorite Cozy songs, The Friendly One.

When you add all this to his work with various groups, the guy had an amazing career. I wish he was better recognized with restrospectives and rare-releases. (And a DVD of his various stints in bands would be awesome.)
