He 'Aint Heavy gives me the shivers - what a voice ! Using the word 'encumber' in such a soulful song is genius. Elton John aka Reg played piano on it and got payed the princely sum of £12.

Let them eat rich, expensive, funny-shaped, yellow, eggy buns.

Great band. They had a kind of 2-phase career; all the stuff of the 60s, then they went quiet for a while then came back with The Air That I Breathe, and He Ain't Heavy, then they disappeared again. Alan Clarke is a great singer, the band is good too. I bought the greatest hits album for my Mum a while back. Some great songs :splif:

Hope you ripped the CD to your computer before you gave it to your Mum Phil. That's what I always do when giving CD's as gifts :)

Me, tight, never :)

The other trick is to buy it from Amazon and the 'Auto Rip' CD's end up in your Amazon MP3 cloud account. Happy days :thumb:

What I like about Allan Clarke's vocals on 'He 'aint heavy' is that they're so imperfect .... really stretched and almost flat sometimes, but totally passionate.

sadly bunny if they were to record it now it'd be autotuned to buggery and totally ruined
