Cheers for that.

Funny you should choose to emerge when it's freezing cold and horribly damp. I'm staying in hibernation and misery for at least another week.

(This is the only link I could find on YouTube from a quick scout. The album and live album versions are much better and well worth a spin).

Lovely song

Add this from a singer who has had a 40 year break from the public.

Something in a different vein; still very sad though. The chord that starts this clip is the very end of a very beautiful passage for 4 solo cellos: worth looking up if you like that sort of thing.

In reply to Daithi O Murchu: Have a bit of Jim Moray, with a hint of mellotron. Lovely, if sad, song.

Heard one today on a radio show in Texas called "When you get to heaven give me a call". One of the heaviest songs I have ever heard, in a melancholy minor key.
