John & Beverly Martyn

On thursday night we counted every single piece of the 106,000 bits of stock in the shop I work in. Mind-numbing tedium that sent most of us into a bizzarre state somewhere between manic and zombie. We wired my colleague's iPod into the stereo to sooth our aching heads but the strange mix of 60s psychedelic folk and Scott Walker merely added a surreal edge to our hypnotic states.

Anyway, this song was appeared and really stuck with me. It's by folk legend John Martyn and his then wife Beverly from 1970's 'Road to Ruin', the second of two albums they put out together.
