    One of my favorite all-time singers was the Gentle Giant, Don Williams. I was surprised to find a group from India who also loved Don Williams so much that they sing a lot of tribute songs of his music,
    They are called “Streetlights’, and you can find some of their versions of Don’s songs on youtube. (Search streetlights, Don Williams )
    This one does not show the whole group singing, but I really liked how well they have captured the essence of one of my most beloved of Don Williams songs, “You’re My Best Friend”.

    Gentle Giant brings back memories. They seemed to be every touring band's opening act back in the day. I think they opened for Jethro Tull quite often (my ex was an Ian Anderson freak.)
