GROUCHO MARX liked Allan Fraser’s music so much he invited him for dinner at his home in the Hollywood Hills. The New York Times said of Fraser’s songs, “…with this range of feeling, dense imagery and unexpected depth, these words may well find a place in the oral tradition of poetry.” Fraser’s compositions have been recorded by John Oates (Hall and Oates), Tom Russell, Garrison Keillor with Andra Suchy of Prairie Home Companion, Cal Hand with Leo Kottke, Pat Donahue, Bill Hinkley and Judy Larson, (also on NPR’s A Prairie Home Companion), The Duhks, Penny Lang and Ron Hynes. NPR listed Allan’s signature song, Dance Hall Girls, as one of the 10 best songs of all time.
