Meant as a bonus track that ended up being the 11 minute closer to the album.
This song features everyone who appeared elsewhere on the record… plus a few extra for good luck.
No-one, including those involved in the live take (bass, drums, percussion) were told what the chords were or what was going to happen, and were all asked just to listed for a bit and then join in when they thought they had got it!
It was a fascinating way to record and I think I got some really honest playing out of people.
I concluded my recording experience of this record by gate crashing one of my Mothers Ladies choir rehearsals and asking them to sing on the outdo… after that, I figured I had thrown the kitchen sink in too!
