[coronadrop #10 in a series of previously unreleased songs—released here daily—until the quarantine is over or i run out of decent unreleased songs]
this is a song originally by charles douglas from his record 31 flavours, one of my favourite albums.
around 2008 charles emailed me and said he’d read in a couple of places that i was a fan.
was i a fan? of course.
would i be interested in covering one of his songs for a tribute record he was putting together? duh.
seriously though, how do you NOT love a pretty much completely obscure artist with the audacity to solicit tracks for his own tribute record?
i don’t know if the tribute record ever came out.
but there’s this.
