From Clare To Here


This is a Ralph Mctell song , a very underated British singer / songwriter , probably famous for one song , The Streets of London , but in fact wrote many great songs , he wrote this while working on a building site before he was signed by a record label, telling of the loneliness of his fellow irish workmates

Immediately drawn by the vocal sound on this. So full and resonant. Still can understand the lyric. Like the first person thing you do.

What a tonic! Gentle, intimate, peaceful…

Mix is also outstanding (IMVHO).

I must admit that I don’t know any of McTell’s songs except “Beautiful Dreamer” and “Streets Of London”. But I don’t think the original version of this song can be much better than yours. :)

Very well done again, Rob. Although I’d prefer to hear you sing more original songs as those I’ve had the pleasure to listen to were awesome.

What a pretty song! I’m guessing you are meaning the Clare in Ireland. I actually spend a few years in Clare, Australia. The song works well for there too. I enjoyed this a lot.
