Where's the Shakin' Steven's cover of the Dan Penn song from? Conway Twitty did it first, right? I'm a born again sucker for the Edmunds produced Sunsets album, A Legend. On the notes on the rear sleeve, Edmunds writes: "This album contains what was the most progressive music in the history of recorded sound." He wrote that in 1970. Go tell that to the editors of the Wire magazine . . .

Best, Peter

It showed up on Shaky's album First Take which, I think, was his second album. Produced by ex-Pinkerton Assorted Colours bassist, Stuart Colman. You're right re Dan Penn and Conway Twitty. Is A Legend a good alb? I never got to hear that one.

I don't know First Take, I'll try and track that down. A Legend makes a great companion piece to the first Dave Edmunds solo; lighter on the overdubs, but just as heavy on the rockin' side of things. I don't think it has been reissued on cd, so I will send you a dub from vinyl.
