1981. A concise distillation of his best work up to that point. As an added bonus there is a second CD with two tracks from
a 1979 Radio Clyde session, as well as an interview conducted at the session. Digitally remastered from the original 10" master
A Rainy Night In Paris
It's a rainy night in Paris,
And the harbour lights are low.
He must leave his love in Paris
the winter snow;
On a lonely street in Paris
He held her close to say,
"We'll meet again in Paris
are flowers on the Champs-Elysees."
"How long" she said "How long,
And will your love be strong,
you're across the sea,
Will your heart remember me?..."
Then she gave him words to turn to,
When the winter nights
"Nous serons encore amoureux
Avec les couleurs du printemps..."
"And then" she said "And then,
love will grow again."
Ah but in her eyes he sees
Her words of love are only words to please...
And now the
lights of Paris
Grow dim and fade away,
And I know by the light of Paris
I will never see her again...
