Story behind the song
This track was recorded on an old eighties Soundcraft one-inch 8-track which lit up like a Christmas tree. Kate Bush had one as well apparently... The vocal you hear is the first take. The machine conked soon afterwards. It's me actually writing the melody live to the guitar backing-track. It's the only time we ever recorded the vocals and the guitar separate. It was inspired by a Swedish girl I used to see around Soho sometimes... Jeanette was her name. And very beautiful she was.
When love is blind I'm happy as can be...
