13_Crazy Dreams (1980) (original single recording)
One of my very first and still one of my most popular songs, this early version was recorded in London in summer 1980 and released in Ireland to coincide with my first electric band tour that October. It was a hit on radio but I wasn’t totally happy with the feel and when it came to recording the Hard Station album in early 81, I went back to the 79 demo of the song and built on that which became the definitive version. Now I enjoy the raw innocence of this. Mark Isham on flugelhorns, Billy Livesy piano, Peter van Hooke on drums and Mo Foster on bass.
