    Remember him well. I was his recording engineer in the 60's at Lansdowne Studios in London.He always had trouble parking his Rolls Royce, so the first part of a session, was tossing the keys to me. Also, after I returned to NZ and Acker was touring here, recorded "Acker Down Under"
    Always a joy to work with.

    Even I liked him and his clarinet.

    Except for the bit about parking the Rolls, a 60's beast that was unpredictable and a total dray ...

    But yes, a good muso indeed. RIP Acker.
