My sister's favorite song in high school was Diamond Girl. Saw them in concert, after which they invited audience members to stay for a special message. Turns out it was evangelizing for the Bahai faith, in which the duo were heavily involved. RIP James, joining his brother Dan (of England Dan and John Ford Coley) who died of cancer in 2009.

James is the dude in the hat and beard.

They were a welcome respite, when they came along. I’d never heard anything quite like Summer Breeze, before. Diamond Girl had a bass line that can’t be beat. Nice stuff.

I will miss Jim's great music. I got the opportunity to see a benefit concert in which Jim called upon his brother Dan to help. I had no idea that they were related, but when they harmonized it was that priceless sibling tone that was nothing short of fantastic. Thanks for the great music experience R.I.P.
