A recipient of the Order Of Canada, he had his music taken into space aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour by astronaut Julie Payette. He has toured many parts of the world and over 30 artists have recorded his songs.

The album also includes fan favourites such as “Peter’s Dream”, “Mademoiselle”, “Laisse aller”, and rockin' versions of “47 Angels on Her Front Lawn", “Tales of The Phantom Ship” and “Tell Me A Ghost Story”.
