Wikipedia:
Pitney’s career in the US took a downturn after 1966. However he maintained a successful career in Australia, New Zealand, Britain and the rest of Europe into the 1970s. UK pianist Maurice Merry was his musical director from 1970 onwards. In Australia, after a fallow period in the early 1970s, Pitney returned to the Top 40 in 1974, when both Blue Angel and Trans Canada Highway were substantial hits.
