    Loved this song when Roy played it on last tour; am I right in thinking that it has never been committed to disc in any form?

    one of my favourite....

    Absolutely spliffingly honest song about basically all his relationships and how we are all 'men in the moon' when it comes to us coping with love/death/ romance / problematic times etc.; the whole caboodle in fact; and we sorta hide ourselves 'in the moon' to remind us of our childhood memories in times of stress [or use extraneous inputs] to cope with serious things even like dying and people or pets dying around us.

    The way he sings it [especially Live] also sounds so caring that you almost feel like giving him a Hippie Hug and say thank you Roy for your empatheticity [sp?] in this short space of time of our present lives. Thank you Roy , you have taken me thru' so many hard times... from a hard place sometimes to new horizons of wonder whilst we exist [from my (work) of heart] seriously.

    now shut up andrew
    aw

    Agree entirely, but still looking for an answer....! Is there a clue in 'especially live', I wonder?

    'Caring' is a neat description, I would offer 'humble/humility'

    It's not on any of my records, which hopefully means it's not been released yet :)

    Have only heard it live a few times, so sorry if I confused you, but immediately it impacted on me as one of his Classics, on a par with Hallucinating Light, Another Day, Stormcock etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.

    The funny thing when he was singing it at Clon he smiles as he sings it, almost whimsically, or was that Pan? Well sound and beautiful.. almost makes me cry... now don't you start!! I don't do emotions anymore!

    A rare treat!

    There is always a new song, a new version to be found.

    Art never dies, even when it gathers dust, hidden from the light of day or the victim of ignorance...
