Of the original songs, "Come All Ye" is in the character of a traditional "calling-on song" (as used, for example, by sword dancers, to introduce the members of the side, with their characteristics). "Farewell, Farewell" and "Crazy Man Michael", both with lyrics penned by Thompson, are more obscure in meaning but have been sometimes linked to events surrounding the fatal crash of some months before: the line "will you never cut the cloth" from "Farewell, Farewell" has been suggested to refer to Thompson's then girlfriend Jeannie Franklyn ("Jeannie the Tailor"), killed in the accident, while the crazed protagonist of "Crazy Man Michael", destined to wander the world with guilt for accidentally killing his true love, has been linked to the same event by Thompson himself. Thompson has reportedly never performed these songs himself in concert.

I don't think it is good as the Full House version but it is robust nonetheless and Sandy sings it beautifully
