Thanx for the replies! ;-)

That's not why he was refused entry. Read this wikipedia article under the heading "Denial of entry into the United States". Apparently he was allowed entry to the U.S. last year.

I like Cat Stevens voice. Morning Has Broken would sound like crap if it was sung in an opera style by Pavarotti. Personally, I like David Bowie's voice.

My vote goes to Frank Sinatra.

I really believe in my heart of hearts that Nat King Cole had a smoother voice and better diction than Frank Sinatra. He might not have had the power, but he sure didn't need it.

I don't know about glorious... I tend to like my male vocals deep and chill. Daddy G from Massive Attack is a good example.

I do find Bowie pretty impressive on the right track though.

OOO OOO what about Don Henley!?! Just listen to Hotel California...

Remember the movie Diner? Guys arguing over who is the best listening while making out: Johnny Mathias or Frank Sinatra. That's just the way it was. Either or. Maybe still is.

Cat Stevens? C'mon, no wonder the World birthrate is way, way down.

It's a battle of the Jeffs for me, Buckley or Mangum . The latter is probably going to be ridiculed but glorious isn't exactly a technical term. For me it's about who does the most with what they've got. Special mention to Thom Yorke for consistently putting it all out there, even though the outcome is only occasionally glorious.

Not sure if he's one of the alltime best, but when I saw Bobby McFerrin in concert, he was absolutely incredible. He has a very soothing voice with a very impressive range to boot. He also had a brief moment of opera singing, which was both comedic and exceedingly good.

I think that Don McLean has got the most gorgeous voice. A bit of a shame as his music doesnt really do it for me.

I can only go with my own definition of glorious and say either Scott Walker or Robert Gordon (find his version of "It's Only Make Believe").

Three pages and no Phil Collins? Comon guys! But really Steve Perry or Freddy Mercury.

I'm not sure you'll get much of an argument there, even from most Sinatra fans. I could listen to either endlessly.

Oh, and what an awesome piano player Nat was too. Really underrated in that respect I believe.

The information that I read a year ago, has been corrected by the article in Wikipedia. It is good to see that he has been allowed to visit the US! I am still hoping that someone with the time and quality headfile gear, will give me their objective opinion of "morning has broken".

I know, its just my thing about this song. ;-)
