Hello there Doug, many thanks for giving us the chance of listening to this radio clip, (and I must admit I loved having the chance of listening to the actual voice of another fellow 'cohenite' from the forum!!!) Just for the hell of it I think the TJ version is ok but holds no candle to the main man! I couldn't believe some of the things the presenter Elms was saying. (as you said "amazed"),...never heard of the song!!!, the' Do Dum Dum's' are terrible!! the backing girls are annoying!! ...and his best remark..."I didn't know he (LC) could write a tune!!!! PLEASE!!! And you were so right when you said you have to listen to it (LC's music) for it to become listenable. As I have always said one really has to listen before the poetry for it all opens up to one. Don't you get so p***ed off when they keep coming out with the old waffle of 'laughing Lenny'... as for the comments which were attributed to a caller called Rob re LC music of the 80's.....Oh I give up!!!
Anyway, roll on the forthcoming tour...for those of us who truly do appreciate the sheer genius of the man!
Just noticed Tom Jones is on Graham Norton's show, wonder will he sing 'The Tower' .....(I know, how sad is it that I am in on a Sat night watching telly...note to self...get a hobby!!!)
