Ahh.... What a romantic tune. I recall serenading my current honey with this tune the morning after our first night. Never-the-less, she married me anyway.
I retired it from my repertiore because it dragged so (at least when I sang it). Lately I've been fitting it to the more upbeat dance tempo (and melody) of the Cuckoo's Nest instrumental that follows the vocal.
My impression is the same as Bat Godess' though I don't recall any reason for it. Likewise, I always believed that Ashley Hutchings was the motivator for this project, not John Kirkpatrick. Does anyone know?
