Track 0020: WHY DOES IT NEVER HAPPEN TO ME? (Hodgson) 5:00 (PURITY) (c.April 1973)
Musicians: John Hodgson – piano, Michael Charlton – lead vocals
Recorded: Langley Studios (room 1) mono cassette recorder
A slow mournful ballad, with another rambling lyric dealing with the lack of luck in love that I was having at the time.
You may notice the sound of the piano is noticeably “brighter” on this song, this was because I had read about a trick to make the piano sound like a “honky-tonk”, namely by sticking drawing pins into the hammers.
THINGS TO LISTEN OUT FOR: At 4:26 there is a post-production edit that joins two versions together (quite easy to spot!)
