I wish I could have seen them live.
Yes brilliant - written by Simon Raymonde the day after his father died. One of my favourites too. I was mildly disapointed the times I saw them that they didn't do this one... I think Liz did it at the RFH a few years ago though with an excellent band backing her (including I think her hubby on drums and Thighpaulsandra on keys and arrangements, plus people like Steve Hackett sitting in!)
There's a great cover of this which proves that it's not just Liz's voice or Guthrie's guitar - there is formidable song-craft involved too. Don't know who did it...
Love the guitar at the end. Stellar.
