Album: Join With Us (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • According to Q magazine, the piano that was played at the end of this track was given to Gillespie Sells by his father, when he was 4. The young Dan had asked for a piano so his trader father swapped a multi-gym he'd found in the street for a friend's dilapidated pub honky tonk piano. Gillespie Sells still has it in his apartment.
