Better late than never

I listened to folk music in the 60s and country music in the 70s, at least until the glitter boys took over. In the 80s, I turned off the radio for 20 years, wondering where the music had gone. When my daughter came back from France in the late 90s, she introduced me to French music and then I knew. I spent the last few years catching up, accumulating French music CDs and listening to French radio over the Internet. One day a month or so ago, I heard The Promise You Made on cherie.fm. It was the first song in English that touched me in so many years. I�ve been listening to it over and over, along with The Biggest Fool of All and Coward�s Courage. Listening to clips from Mon Inconnue on alapage.com as I await the arrival of the CD in the mail, I consider the irony of discovering an American singer by way of French radio 20 years after the fact.

Peter says in the CNN interview about how songs should still be able to be enjoyed 10 years later. It probably didn�t seem like a conservative number back then. Like the TV series Star Trek, Cock Robin�s lack of sufficient popular mass hurt them initially, but like Star Trek, their cult following continues to this day because there�s something transcendent in the message. My daughter, who is usually amused with my taste in music, was home from college recently. When she heard The Promise You Made, she asked me who it was. Witness the appeal to yet another generation.

Peter landed in Texas in the early 50s like a bird or seed carried too far on the wind. The � je ne sais crois � that we love in his music�that aching voice, the melodies�seems the longing of a man perpetually out of time and place. And in a circular fashion, isn�t that � chagrin � made tangible in his music, the reason for its timelessness?

Thanks for this great site. I especially like the videos page and hearing Peter�s soft Southern accent in the CNN interview.

Only The Very Best

Hi Peter and fans, I did not succeed in reaching the finals of Belgium's Pop Idol contest. The jury chose two 'poppy' people out of the ten. Seems that the quality of the voice was less important. I want to thank you for this lovely song which enabled me to show my voice to the Belgians. At http://62.235.14.200/getasset.php?id=9764 you can find my live performance: my own 60 seconds of your 'Only The Very Best'. You're the best Peter! Regards, Udo

moved me deeply

I am only 16 years old girl and already love your music. In latvia also no one knows you, but I do. I speak quite bad in english, that is why I can not tell everything what I think about cock robin music. At most I like the song ''just around the corner'' I all the time listen it and I have not fed up yet.

Hi Peter and fans, one of my favorite compositors is Frenchman Michel Berger. A few years ago I started singing Only The Very Best and this Friday (28th February 2003) I will compete live in the Belgian TV programme "Idols" (in Belgium it's called "Idool2003"). I will sing 60 seconds of my interpretation of Only The Very Best, hoping to become one of the ten finalists. Thanks for your lovely music Peter (and I also mean the stuff Cock Robin released)! Kind regards, Udo (PS If you are interested, you can find mt interpretation of Only The Very Best on http://www.udool.be.tf/)

Still miss you and Cock Robin

Hi Peter.
You know i still miss you and Cock Robin, i have never heard so good music since i first listen to you. I do hope that you maybe sometime is comming to Denmark again. I still remember the concert i went to with Cock Robin in Copenhagen, and i am glad that i took so many pictures of you, then i can sit back and listen to the music, and watch pictures of you and the rest of Cock Robin. And i do hope that you make some more english music, because i would undestand that better than france, wich i dont undestand. So please let you know of this message.
Love Annette Nielsen

A hidden treasure

One of the best singers of all time. I always felt that Cock Robin never got their dues. I've been looking for some new music by Peter and Anna.

Thanks for the web site.

Hi Dear Mr. Kingsbery,

I'm a girl from Iran my name is Aram and im 23 years old, i dont know if you read this e-mail yourself but i hope so. at first please forgive me about my bad english). i wanted to tell you my feeling (about you) sadly i dont know you and your songs so much because i live in a country where MUSIC IS FORBIDDEN!!! i dont know how much do you know about Iran but since the islamic government came up everything is forbidden here they stole our freedom we cant even choose our clothes!!!

any way thats where i live and i said music is forbidden here but i have a sattelite that i can watch some foreign channels(in secret! because its against the islamic laws to have a sattelite and if they find out they'll put me in jail!!!!!!)

some weeks ago i was watching the RFM channel and... i saw you there...singing "ONLY THE VERY BEST" song. you cant believe it i was staring at the scens behind you(the flowers) with my eyes full of tears and i had a very strange feeling when you were singing. your voice was dancing with my soul and i felt my heart wants to jump out and go with your voice! when the song ended i felt i want to die or have this song! its forbidden but i've always tried to find good musics and have them sadly in Iran nobody knows you! so i couldnt ask anyone. (im very sorry but i did download your song from a peer to peer site i had no other way) and since that day i've heard your song thousands of times!

tonight i was searching the web for this song's chords or tabs(i play guitar and piano) sadly i found nothing yet instead i found your site!!!and it was a great pleasure for me! you have a very strange and magic voice!!! it realy shakes my heart i have to say thank you!!!

i hope you sing tones of such wonderful songs soon then i will love you more! sorry i talked too much. i hope i can have all of your songs soon(im moving to india! i think i will find more freedom for music there!) be happy and free

...I LOVE YOU...
yours
aram

Hi Peter and Anna. Excuse me for my bad english. I am the last and the only fan of Cock Robin in Italy. When I say to my friends that I am a fan of Cock Robin, they laugh. They don't understand nothing!!! This is the first time that I write to you. I hope that you'll read these words. Thank you for your songs, especially for "A little innocence" and "World apart". Goodbye....

Missed opportunity

Hello Peter,
do you remember?
late 80's - Frankfurt am Main - Alte Oper - Cock Robin in Concert

my brother Olav went to your concert, I didn't. Don't know the reason why, but since then I think

I was The Biggest Fool Of All

my brother was very enthusiastic about your concert and the opportunity to meet you, Anna and the Band after the concert in a restaurant. He went quickly home to get the two first Cock Robin CD`s we had. Then you, Anna and the band signed the CD's and my brother was very lucky.
He also enjoyed to talk with you though his english was not the best....

now 15 years later I sit here these two signed CD's in front of me. The speaker of my PC is singing "I'm the biggest fool of all" and I'm very sad, that I missed this wonderful opportunity to hear and see Cock Robin live.

Thank you for your wonderfull music!

Sincerly Andreas
