This was written during a Guitar Craft course in 2003 during a European heatwave so intense that when I came back to the UK everyone else had better tans than me because in Barcelona it was simply to hot to go outside most of the time. I played it a few times in various GC dining rooms, usually at breakfast. The last time was at Sassoferrato in 2010, and I don’t think I’ll do it again in that sort of place.
I recorded this after one of the Passport radio shows I was recording sessions on during 2009 – after the show, before I took down all the equipment I quickly recorded this, with a handful of the remaining guests as an audience. The sounds in the background are workmen doing something… workmanlike, I suppose. They only started when I began to record, so I was stuck with them.
