Capering capos! I thought I'd strummed along with most versions of this song, either in the Cousins or down the Troubadour or at those private gigs Tony Stratton Smith threw, but I do NOT recall Bert and/or John saddling up banjo and sitar for such a rendering

There was one time (only) that Derroll Adams and I were hanging out in Poland Street and went to check out Bert on banjo ... other than that, this is a great track. And lawd do I remember when Bert had his hair that way. Was it Hamish or Les Bridger who hooted from the back of Les Cousins to have it trimmed? Davy went hush and said it was irrelevant but I remember lèse-majestically thinking they were right.
