I originally bought this recording when it was first released, on cassette as I was a cautious being in those days, and I was buying it unheard, based on a lyrical review in the Guardian, who don't normally review this kind of thing, and whoever wrote the review had, literally, fallen in love with margot's voice.
Whoever they were was right, and this is CJ's best in terms of lyrics and melody, and choices of cover songs. Every time I listen to it, i stop what i am doing, especially for powderfinger. Some lyrics have become household phrases, (I kinda like these extra few feet in my bed) and i can remember what I was doing (stopped doing) the first time I listened to it.
The tape having worn out I am buying it again on CD. There's only one other recording I've done that for!
