Sorting through a pile of old tapes I found Pink Floyd's "Obscured By Clouds" and felt a strange yen to hear this song. In thinking about English singer/songwriters, as we sometimes do, old Dave gets completely overlooked. Just a regular kind of English musician who could never measure up to Syd Barrett and had to make do with enormous wealth and fame and popularity. I think this is a lovely and completely English song, a bit ploddy, yes, perhaps a bit obvious, but...I like it.
