As a result, this survey of Oliver 's career reveals him to be a restless character reaching for artistic and professional direction after two defining but unrepresentative Stardust - Mama Oliver & Original Suntouchers - Mama Oliver & Original Suntouchers feat.
Peter Menyh. Oliver 's own compositions, such as "Young Birds Fly" and "Buddy," show the kind of music he wanted to create: complex, orchestrated, sometimes dramatic adult folk-pop similar to that of Bob Lind.
