No, Weasel, that's Neil Diamond.

Neil Diamond is in need of a significant mention somewhere I feel. Yours or mine Weaz?

Ok, Jules, you do it.

Now, don't get me wrong. Neil Diamond is clearly on the list of important songwriters. But years ago I had to work in a place where they only had two tapes and one was a Neil Diamond tape. They played this incessantly. I tried to hide it. They found the tape. I tried to remonstrate. They threatened me. And so it was that night after night i had forced -abusive to human rights- Neil Diamond.

That did it for me and anyway it was never something that appealed. "Cherry Cherry" is ok I suppose, but I always thought "I'm a believer" and "Red Red Wine" were cheesy, even as covers. Hell, he went to school with Barbara Streisand!!!

Sorry Your Stoatness - it weren't I guv', I was put up to it - by Neil Diamond.

Apologies Weasel - I had no idea - some things run deep, I know. I am positively not singing Cracklin' Rosie anymore.

Now if it had been Crack Head Rosie, a la Tom Waits or Marianne Faithfull, perhaps, I might have been a bit more enthusiastic.
