GUEST,Silas Lyr Add: Isabel Makes Love upon National Monuments (29) RE: One of Jake Thakray's best 14 Dec 10

This is also one of my favourite Jake songs, however, I was talking to him many years ago about this very song and why he never seemed to sing it in public any more. His answer was quite interesting. He told me that he was singing this song on stage a year or so before, and halfway through he realised that although he was singing, he was actually thinking about replacing a broken window in his garage and if he had enough putty to do the job or whether he needed to by some more. He realised to himself that the song meant nothing to him anymore and he never sang it again! Tragic really for such a great song.
Incidentally, the chords for this song and another favourite 'Leopald Allcocks' are exactly the same.
