Title: Vale of Health
Post by Ian Chippett on Today at 16:51
I came across a reference to the Vale of Health recently which for some reason I'd always imagined was a metaphor rather than an actual place (I suppose it's both.) Here it is:

The Vale of Health is attached to Hampstead Heath and I sometimes wonder if the lady in the song today would be driving to the gentrified part of Notting Hill rather than the other way.  I love the word pictures in the lyric of Rain-Wheels and the idea of the vocal fade-out as the car speeds away leaving the music of the rain behind.

Two weeks ago I realised the 35 year-old -dream and now I have a Jaguar parked outside my house.

Would you care for us cripples if you could, Ian?

Well done Ian. There's something about Jaguars isn't there? Sadly, I've never been inside one, but the various designs have managed a shape that hints both at discreet luxury and brute force.
