We played this at Rotherham and Nearfest last year. At the time we were figuring out how to develop it into a song, but good sense prevailed and we decided to leave it as an instrumental. Beautiful. And with the best drumming Colin's ever done :-).
The Dream here is "the dream of home" when you may find your self on faraway shores. I close my eyes and see the snow gently falling in the fields and hills around the studio. This is soooo evocative of our little corner of the planet. This is a gorgeous little piece which will afford Colin, Alan and I the luxury of a nice brew up at side of stage whilst on tour. You can never have too much tea. Tough tittie Niall and Ron...get the kettle on G.C. Dear Boy"!
This was one of those special moments, like "Blood and Roses", between Ron and my self were Ron played a chord and I played a tune and the song just wrote itself in about 15 mins. Done..
Some would say, my best drum part EVER! ( They did. Ed )
In four minutes and two seconds, Niall and I simultaneously brought this piece into existence. Not a note, chord or sound has been altered from the original performance. Cool, eh?
