Has nobody else put the bonus question URL in and said Screaming Jay Hawkins?

Hi piggy

47. Love and Happiness. (Had to check the cd cover rather than go on failing memory, the chorus refrain and avoid confusion with the later track Belle Star.)

Cooda go dig out that EH/MK All The Roadrunning album and give it a listen. The real sleeper on that album is I Dug Up A Diamond. In the 15 or 20 second instrumental bridge between the first chorus and the second verse there's a chord change. It can't be more than 3 or 4 seconds long so you have to listen for it, otherwise it'll slide right by. Pure Knopfler genius.
