OK lovely people, I need your expertise. This hypnotic bluesy doo-woppy thing has sat on the same infernal Peel show tape that Ray Martell and this (and a copy of Arthur Alexander) are on for that same 26 years and I'm mad keen to know what it is.
I'm pretty sure it's from a programme broadcast on October 20th 1982 because my tape also has songs from reggae toasters Laurel And Hardy's Peel Session, which aired that night.
I have tried Googling the lyrics and I have tried that there young person's tune-identifying text service Shazam, both to no avail.
And so I throw it before you, the great and wonderful and complex and all-knowing collective.
Name that artist/tune! (er...even a few informed guesses would be nice...).
Unknown Artist - 'Even Though You Are Gone' (?) (unknown year)
PS: It does liderally fade in slowly.
