Hi Alex,
Looking forward to your "short songs" show (or shows).
One thing I noticed when you've done these shows in past years is that you played the song "London is Behind Me" by Justin Hayward. BUT - it was not really that song. What you played was actually the B-side of the original 45, a song called "Day Must Come". And you did it on (at least) two different shows! I figured you must have accidentally played the wrong side of the 45, but then a few years ago I picked up a DVD compilation of Pye label material, and sure enough they also had the wrong song ("Day Must Come") included when "London is Behind Me" was listed. So that must have been the source of your copy that you played.
It's hard to believe that the compilers of that set didn't notice all through its production that they were using the 45's B-side instead of the one they intended, especially when the song "Day Must Come" never says anything about London being behind anyone!
So anyway, I just thought that I'd alert you to this in case you have "London is Behind Me" scheduled for your upcoming shows.
