Repetition


Casual readers (sports jacket & slacks) may wonder at the interest in multiple-bloody-versions of one song. I can't really explain it myself - better ask all the people who come here & play 'em. I do know that digging out so many, does involve a willingness to listen again & again, to (sometimes) near-identical performances; and it's a puzzle how that sits with my restless search for novelty. But sit it does - I'll happily have one good thing on repeat - then cast off to find the next one.

that sounds so weak on most versions (incl. the above) - you just cannot beat the original 45rpm vinyl. I bought it as a kid from a local record/photographic shop "It's the last one" said the owner - "So you can have it cheap". Woo!
