Event details: Scotland's Jackie Leven got his start as the singer for the group Doll by Doll. After the band's demise, he hit a streak of bad luck - his girlfriend left him for the Dalai Lama's bodyguard, and his flirtation with drugs became a full-on addiction. Eventually, however, he got clean, and lived to sing about his troubles on his 1995 debut for Cooking Vinyl, The Mystery of Love Is Greater Than the Mystery of Death. The label also reissued his 1975 record, Control (originally released as by John St. Field), and the new album Forbidden Songs of the Dying West later in 1995. Several additional albums appeared during the late '90s, including studio efforts for Cooking Vinyl and Thirsty Ear, plus live albums recorded for Haunted Valley. Elegy for Johnny Cash arrived in 2005.
