New today, but a James/Atkin song from 1968. Pete Atkin and Simon Wallace play "The Party's Moving On", written for Julie Covington but requiring just three almost imperceptible pronoun changes for Pete to make it his own. Pete wonders whether younger viewers might need an explanation of 'ashtray'.

Chronological inexactitude: Julie's version (https://www.peteatkin.com/mv/i10.php) of the song (for the demo album The Party's Moving On (https://www.peteatkin.com/disworks.htm#tpmo)) was recorded on the afternoon of February 4th, 1969.

The gifts keep coming along. It has taken a while for Pete to get round to doing this charming cover. Many thanks again to the performers and the indefatigable webmaster.
The link to Julie C's version doesn't seem to be working Steve.

Hello Avner

Glad you enjoyed the video. Re the 'original' version, did you read the 'small print' on the '404' page? I hoped I'd made it clear on the Discography page itself (without being too explicit), but for reasons I'll not go into here you need to be logged in to MV to hear certain of those tracks. You'll find quite a wealth of stuff, especially if you use the 'previous' and 'next' chevrons on the player page, which take you beyond the limits of what's on the LPs. Happy listening!

Thank you Steve for the clarification.
Julie C's version is charming too of course.
