0011 Remember Girl (In This World) (Purity)

from by Fast Cakes



Track 0011: REMEMBER GIRL (IN THIS WORLD) (Hodgson/Charlton) 2:58 (PURITY) (c.September 1972)
Musicians: John Hodgson – piano, Michael Charlton – lead vocals, drums
Recorded: Langley Studios (room 1) mono cassette recorder
Although Michael and I were basically non-musicians at this point, we occasionally came up with good ideas. The chorus is a pleasant Dmin/Cmaj7 (although we didn't know what they were called at the time)
The production values, although primitive, are a significant improvement on previous tracks. The piano has a solid rounded sound, and Michael sat closer to the microphone to achieve a better balance. As a result you can hear every word of the vocal, which incidentally is a little story about a man who is making a play for someone else's girlfriend, who is being treated badly by her current partner.
The drumming was not the usual biscuit tins either, Michael tapped what was probably a suitcase with his hands, which blended well with the overall sound.
This song appears three more times in this set, in instrumental form (track #0013), in live form (track #0232) and another home recording (track #237)
