My version of the Don McLean classic from the ‘Playing Dirty’ album.
I always loved this song but felt it lacked something. Then when I saw Don perform it at Glastonbury this year I realised what it was – it needs a guitar solo. Now admittedly given the fact I play guitar I suppose I would think this – so my version includes one.
And if you can’t be arsed to wade through the whole song just to listen for it, then it starts around 5’15” in! As it happens, I’d like to think the whole 9’20” minutes is worth listening to.
And given the length of this track, don’t say I don’t give you value for money!
