Galway's engaging personality and brilliant playing made him a household name in the 1970s. There was hardly a TV show he didn't appear in, including Top of the Pops. In 1978 he recorded a version of John Denver's ‘Annie's Song’ for his then wife Annie. The single peaked at No. 3 in the UK Singles Chart.
