Just caught the last ten minutes of this, so will listen again. What I heard was very good.

In case you don't know the song, here 'tis:

I once saw a 45 of this in the second-hand section of Colletts. I never bought it (naturally).

A young woman sang a lovely-voiced version (with ukulele) of this new standard at The Goose Is Out singaround a couple of weeks ago.

Looking forward to this, heard a couple of minutes of it earlier today. Here's a better (direct) link:

Phew, praise the gods for Jim Abbott. Enjoyed John Renbourn's contribution. What a harrowing, but compelling (for anyone who loves his music), tale
