The Riddle in the Middle of Nowhere

See Pop Matters for a fine piece on Anja Garbarek's "Smiling and Waving" (Virgin 2001) ("The Riddle in the Middle of Nowhere" 10 August 2017).

Listen to the beautiful song "The Diver" with Robert Wyatt over here if you don´t have it in any format.

Later Robert did a cover of "Stay Tuned" from "Smiling and Waving" on the "Comicopera" album in 2007.
