by Mick Bolton; I played piano on this track on Dexys (Midnight Runners) 1985 album ‘Don’t Stand Me Down‘ and it’s been a pleasure to play it again for the first time since then. Even without the words it’s a very emotional piece of music and I hope I have been able to do it justice.
This song was written by Kevin Rowland and appears on the third Dexys record, ‘Don’t Stand Me Down‘. I love the song and the record is one of my all time favourites. Hearing this version today brought a tear to my eye. (JB)
