This is the very first track I ever made. It was also my first attempt at trying to record something at home after buying a keyboard that gave me the ability to make my own backing tracks, even if I couldn’t play keyboards – I just listened to the original Matt Monro track and worked out each instrument part.
It was recorded over 10 years ago using a minidisc player and a cheap mic I bought from a music shop in Liverpool. At the time I didn’t know any recording techniques like EQ, limiting or compression, but hearing it again after all this time it doesn’t sound too bad considering.
Even though I love the Matt Monro version, I do still think this song would’ve been perfect for Scott Walker.
Anyway, here it is…
