Doc Neeson’s final recording brought him full circle with his original producers Vanda & Young. Doc’s final song is his cover of the Flash and the Pan’s ‘Walking In The Rain’.

Neeson performed the song in December for ‘RockWiz Salutes Vanda and Young’ and then recorded a studio version produced by Brendan Gallagher for Albert Productions.
