Sorry if this has been posted.
hopefully on iplayer too
And cello song has just come on
Thank you thank you thank you.
that cello part still sends the shivers down the spine.
cos that version was piss poor, as most of these have been.
Harper Simon? You can't sing for shit and your name's the wrong way around, son.
In other news - watching someone play the standy-up-bass is infinitley soothing.
Was ace. Really ace. It went all Kashmir an' shit.
Funny that they should turn the tune most see as capturing Drake's inner torment into the most euphoric moment of the night, though...
I thought most of those version were pretty poor. Too rough sounding for the beautiful songs they were covering.
The majority of the vocalists (not all) weren't even in necessary league to cover Nick Drake.
