Music to Listen to - Pete Atkin and Clive James
Did you know that the author and TV presenter Clive James writes song lyrics?
I do because I've been listening to them for years, ever since I heard the man who sings them - Pete Atkin - perform for the first time.
Today Atkin and James release a new CD, entitled Midnight Voices. It consists of new arrangements of some of their finest songs. I recommend it highly - it's literate, tuneful and moody. I am addicted.
Since it is hard to categorise, you may be better off sampling the music than trying to capture its spirit from reading my prose. Or even John Bungey's prose.
So go to the Pete Atkin website (the creation of appreciative fans), scroll down and on the left hand column is a list entitled "Listen to". The fifth song on that list - Touch has a Memory - is the opening song on the album.
