Oh I think Rockville is wonderful and it sorta aches with a particular kind of adolescent heartbreak. Mills had such a lovely voice

I can also play it on the guitar. Which is nice

Mills is a classic example of a guy with a great voice for harmony/backing vocals who is a bit insipid when he sings lead.
Near Wild Heaven is a great tune, but his voice is a bit too weak for it I reckon.

Has Mills an All Things Must Pass in him?
Hip Someone who knows the score. Someone who understands jive talk Someone who is with it The expression is not subject to definition because, if you don't dig what it means, no one can ever tell you.

Oh I agree, but he was never a great vocalist (although I like his vocals well enough) -sorry to derail things with The Beatles!
