Will Holt, R. I. P. Will Holt, a songwriter whose lyrics for the 1970 musical “The Me Nobody Knows” were nominated for a Tony Award, and whose Latin-tinged folk song “Lemon Tree” became a musical signpost of the 1960s, covered by myriad artists and finding its way into advertising and the literature of the Vietnam War, died on Sunday in Los Angeles. He was 86.  

Hat tip to Jeff Meyerson.

A very talented man. The album from his 1979 Broadway revival of A KURT WEILL CABARET was one of my favorites
