He's even responsible for making our own Joe Dolan an international star! He penned ‘Make Me An Island', ‘Good Lookin' Woman' and ‘Teresa' for Joe. "I loved Joe" He said. "After I wrote those songs for him, I moved to California. Joe was looking for more material to record. But nobody told me. That was a big regret of mine. Joe was an amazing talent and a wonderful person"
Albert has been writing hit songs for over 50 years. There has not been a single decade in which he has not written multiple hits songs since he scored his first hit with ‘Little Arrows' at the age of 24. That song was a Number One in the Irish Charts for The Dixies Showband and the Spanish version went on to top the charts in many Latin American Countries.
