There were a number of hit versions on some of Les’s songs. Motown Records released Marvin Gaye’s version of “It’s Not Unusual”. Diane Shaw secured a number 1 slot in the Soul charts with “Leave a Little Love”. The classical group, Il Volo, had huge success with their version of “Delilah”.

Ken Bruce, one of the most successful presenters on BBC Radio 2, invited Les to feature on “The Tracks of My Years” for a week on his excellent programme.
