Let her dream

Skylark was a Canadian band that lasted just long enough to put out two albums and four singles, one of which hit the big time. And that one, I assure you, deserved to:

“Wildflower” was the second of those four singles; the third, “I’ll Have to Go Away,” made a run at the chart but didn’t quite make it. On long-play, “I’ll Have to Go Away” was prefaced by the instrumental “Suite for My Lady.” B. J. Cook sang the lead on this one; Donny Gerard was the voice on “Wildflower.” (Capitol, for some reason, felt compelled to explain the different vocal deployment on the picture sleeve of the single.) At the time, Cook was married to keyboardist/composer David Foster, who eventually became a big-name music producer.

    Hm. The lyrics are familiar but the tempo isn’t. I must recognize this from some, perhaps just slightly faster, cover version. Or does the Donny Gerard version sound that different?
