Clive sings Girl on the Train?

I've had a highly entertaining correspondence with an Australian who chose me, apparently at random, to ask about how she could get a copy of Girl on the Train, which she remembered having on an old cassette - sung by Clive.  I advised her in the way you might expect, and added that I thought it was unlikely to be Clive, for obvious reasons. She was, in the ensuing exchanges, very adamant that Clive's distinctive voice was the one she remembered. So, MV historians- does such an artefact exist?

If it does, I've never heard it. Perhaps he sang it on the Australian tour a few years ago?

I'm afraid I can't help you on this one.  Even allowing for the recently demonstrated frailty of memory (see the Lady Of A Day thread) I'm as sure as can be that Clive has never sung this in my company.  My guess is that the recording in question was a cheap and cheerful cassette taping of an off-the-cuff performance somewhere, one most unlikely to be documented anywhere at all, I'd have thought.  I think the only way to find out more would be for Rob himself to ask the lady about its provenance.

Thanks Pete.  She's not the most reliable witness, from what I can gather, and she lost the cassette years ago, but remembered the song. So my guess is that she'd heard you sing it, associated it with Clive, and developed a false memory of a rendition by him.

The trouble is, now I want to hear Clive sing it! (and Stranger in Town).
