Cover Songs

 
Imagine
Imagine A re-imagined approach to Lennon's masterpiece, arranged for guitars, spoken voice and a small choir. Anne-Emmanuelle Marie wrote the text which she recites in the middle of the piece (in French). 
   Album:  Atlantic Avenue

Bird on the Wire
Bird on the Wire One of my favourite Cohen songs, arranged for two guitars. I've been playing this for so long, and yet it always moves me.  
   Album:  Who Knows Where the Time Goes

Who Knows Where the Time Goes ?
Who Knows Where the Time Goes ? Sandy Denny's immortal classic is the final song on the album, and is sung as a duet with the delightful Amy 'Sugarbee' Caldwell, whom I've never met. (We collaborated on the song via the 'net). One of the finest songs ever written about the fragility of Love in the face of Time.

One Too Many Mornings

The Rose
The Rose Maybe it was because it was the day before Valentine's Day, but I heard Bette Midler's version of this on the radio as I was putting the album together, and was blown away by it. It seemed only natural to include it on an album which was themed on Love and the passage of Time.

Anthem
Anthem I first heard this seminal track on Leonard Cohen's 'Live in London' CD, which my daughter gave me for my birthday, and it blew me away. Recorded at Cahors Folk Club in 2010. 
   Album:  Ballads and Blues
