This response to his first fan-mail written by an American, dated 1967, proves it.
I’ve been waiting for some reaction to the album from American listeners. There were reviews in Billboard and Cash Box, but they were by professional critics and they rarely reflect the opinions of the public. The critics were very flattering however. They even liked the single “Love You Till Tuesday”. I’ve got a copy of the American album and they’ve printed the picture a little yellow. I’m really not that blond.
This gives me hope that he will one-day respond to my regular letters, in which I plead for him to get to work on Omikron 2.
