Clive Gregson and Christine Collister: I Specialise
When I was a district councillor back in the 1980s (I was only 14 when I was elected) I served on the IBA committee which oversaw the Leicester commercial radio station Leicester Sound.
One of the programmes I got into the habit of listening to was John Shaw's Here Be Dragons on Sunday evenings. Shaw (who is still around on Smooth FM) played a lot of folk and world music, and this is a record I remember from that time. Collister has a wonderful voice and the song's bleak sentiments appeal to me.
There is more on Gregson and Collister for those who want it. And you get a second song ("It's All Just Talk") with this video too.
Later. Not any more you don't. I have had to change the video after the first one disappeared from Youtube.
