No, he won't ever make it into the RRHOF. However, his discography of tremendous albums stands up with many who have far more name recognition and not an ounce of his talent. If there is a Vocalist Hall of Fame he'd belong in a heart beat.

totally agree, as reference to wikipedia:

"His compositions have been performed by artists such as Mel Tormé and Carmen McRae, while Stan Getz said of him that he was "a horn with a heartbeat".

Rankin's own unique gift for reworking classic songs such as The Beatles' "Blackbird," which he recorded for his Silver Morning album, so impressed Paul McCartney that he asked Rankin to perform his interpretation of the song when McCartney and John Lennon were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame."

He may not belong in the RRHOF but still this man is worthy of recognition. Anyway what's the criteria for Musical Excellence?
