      • Ha! Ha! Another SFTW coincidence – Nobbly had a similar surprise a few weeks ago when I posted something (Dr Feelgood, I think) he had been considering.

        It’s spookier than that, because after listening to your track, I was going to post ‘Will You Miss Me When I’m gone?’ by the Walkabouts, in keeping with the theme.

        However, despite it starting off beautifully, it went on a bit (I haven’t listened to it for a few years), so I decided to put this lovely song on. (By the way, I didn’t know that the NHs had covered it!).

        Because the intro reminds me so much of the Stones’ ‘I Got The Blues’, I was going to post that next, but because I couldn’t find a decent-sounding recording of it, I posted Wild Horses instead!

  7. I love “Baker Street”–I bought the Gerry Rafferty album just for that one song, many years ago. It’s totally unique–I’ve never heard anything else like it.
