State memorial for Jimmy Little

There were tears and laughter at the state service for Jimmy Little in Sydney today. Described as the "gentlest songman", Jimmy Little made the Australian music charts with hits such as Royal Telephone, Shadow of the Boomerang and Yorta Yorta Man. His captivating smile and gentle manner will be sorely missed. All pictures by Peter Rae. Selected images available from www.fairfaxsyndication.com.
