Last night we were in the Eleanor Arms finalising plans to get George Clinton and Parliament to perform there - Leslie reckons we could just about squeeze the Mothership into the parking bay. During a break in the planning, Frankie kindly leant me a 1993 single by Ultramarine featuring Robert Wyatt on vocals. Here it is, along with two more Wyatt collaborations.
"Kingdom" - Ultramarine
"The Doubtful Guest" - Michael Mantler
"The Winds Of Change" - Robert Wyatt & The SWAPO Singers
Robert had a minor hit in the 1970s with his version of Chris Andrews' "Yesterday Man". But for the best in Chris Andrews' cover versions, Bernd Spier is your man.
