Sham on ya Billy for makin me think ya couldn’t sing!! I know better now!! THANK YOU !!!!!!!!

  • MsBkirk:

    The Humblebums must have been a folkie equivalent of Mark and Jeremy in Peep Show in that, if you combined Billy’s outgoing qualities and storytelling, and Gerry’s musicianship, you’d have the perfect person!

    Hello there, that’s exactly what I was thinking. I’m a Londoner myself but I am really appreciating the soft voice Billy is singing with….

    Billy Connolly often says he has a voice like a goose farting in the fog but this song is proof that thats rubbish!

  • xTHExJOKERx718:

  • hawjhawj68:

    As an American who first discovered Billy about 20 years ago when Whoopi Goldberg introduced him to us on an HBO special, it’s great to hear a sample of what the world’s greatest stand-up comedian was doing earlier in his career. It came as a real surprise to me when I first learned that he was once in a band with Gerry Rafferty! Wow! Who woulda thunk it? Anyway, great to hear it!

    Very beautiful, especially as it’s sung in their native accent, in stead of the usual, characterless,’ transatlantic rock’ accent so many Commonwealth bands adopt. A Scottish accent is one of the most beautiful of all accents for singing with.
