Come On Let´s Go!
Robert Wyatts "Free Will and testament" is on Paul Weller´s sampler, made for the April issue of Mojo (no 221, 2012).
How can you make a better choice than this song (although Weller admits he´s a bit biased, playing on that tune himself!)? New readers please take notes: The song was first released on Hugh Hopper & Kramer´s album "A Remark Hugh Made" (1995)(great version too!) and then on Wyatt´s fantastic album "Shleep" (1997).
Weller on "Free Will and Testament": "So, yes, it´s sort of bleak but, like a lot of music, when you listen to it, it actually pulls you out of depression"
Paul Weller´s cover of Nick Drake´s "River Man" is on the album too. This song was recorded for the 50th anniversary CD to celebrate the company Island, called "Island Life" (2009).
