“You know, that’s REALLY sad…..”


Buying some veggies at the container-that’s-a-fruiit-and-veggie-shop on O’Connor Road, and the radio started playing “How long”.

“Oh” I said “That’s “Ace” – “How Long” and that’s Paul Carrack singing, he was with Mike nd the Mechanics, saw him in concert. The cover of the album’s in a pub and he’s wearing a sleeveless pullover”

“Wow’ she said.

Which was better than an episode in the Jester House in Tasman when they were playing Jackson Browne and “Runing on Empty” from the eponymous album.

I reeled off the band – Russ Kunkel, Lee Sklar, Craig Doerge, Rosemary Butler, Doug Haywood, Danny Kortchmar and David Lindley

Owner Judy Richards just looked pityingly at me and said ” That’s really sad, you know….”

  1. I wasn’t familiar with the band, but playing the clip, I have heard that song from time to time.
