The Rockingbirds: Restless
This is another song from the days when I still bought vinyl LPs. The Rockingbirds were a shortlived (though they have reformed in recent years) country rock group from London - Muswell Hillbillies, or something like that.
AllMusic says their eponymous first LP from 1992 "earned a warm critical response but met with commercial failure".
This is my favourite track from it, though I also have a soft spot for Jonathan, Jonathan too - even though it turned out to be a tribute, not to me, but to Jonathan Richman.
