GUEST,Frank Hamilton Lyr Req: Nature Boy (Eden Ahbez) (13) RE: Lyr Req: the enchanted boy (Nature Boy) 18 Aug 06


Not much is known about Eben Ahbez. I met him in the 1970's in Hollywood when I was working at Barney Kessel's Music World as a guitar teacher. He was residing in a tree in Griffith Park. He had the features reminiscent of the characterization of Jesus. I don't know what he real name was. He liked to play a bamboo flute.

He informed me that his song was sold outright or had been lifted from him, (I forget which)
and he received no remuneration from it's sales which went to Cole and the publisher.

It was based on a Hungarian folk melody.
