Merely me trying to be amusing (and failing) about YET another person thinking that PTFM is a AWB song. Bugged me for years

Yes, Grant, I've also seen this gross error many times, but they might be forgiven for making the mistake when you chop out of PTFM the guitar riffs that come straight from the horns in "pieces". Never mind, it's the thought that counts!

Some might not regard these as covers (Ned Doheny co-wrote both songs with Hamish), but here are A Love Of Your Own, and What'cha Gonna Do For Me, performed by Ned Doheny:

I think it's the enduring music of AWB all over the world, Harry, as there seems to be no corner where someone isn't playing their music at one time or another. So many people working in "Soul Mines":

Here's an interesting "cover of a cover". AWB took The Crusaders' instrumental Put It Where You Want It, and cleverly added words to make it a sort of double classic. I think this is a nice cover of that "cover of a cover":

I quite like this "cover of a cover" subsection, and I'm also amazed at how they match the rhythms of two different songs when mashed together (how do they do that?).

Anyway, on the subject of If I Ever Lose This Heaven, the song came to my ears first via AWB, and this "cover of a cover" still has AWB connections. This is a magic version with Alex Ligertwood (Aftershock) and Steve Ferrone (no introductions needed):

Enjoy!

Hadn't seen that before Marc - arranged very much like the AWB version - for a 64 year old Alex still sounds great, almost as good as that other Glaswegian we know.

I know the fella you mean, Grant - used to sing a bit in a popular beat combo in the '70s, and also quite recently with his own excellent band, and also with this cover of a cover, with a little help from his friends:

Wow thats a vocal!

Still hoping to talk Fred into doing this number when he sits in with some British musos sometime, with Jo Harman on vocals. Fred may not go for it and Jo's vocal won't be the same as Alex (or Hamish or AG, for that matter) but I'd still like to hear it.

Always been a favourite tune

Click on the link below, close your eyes immediately for about two minutes and imagine the 5-piece band you're hearing, then open your eyes and be amazed.

I know where you're coming from, Harry; I need a magnifying glass just to find my laces!

Anyway, back to business, this guy just blew me away:
