    Hi

    I recently uploaded my own arrangement of Shipbuilding.
    It is based on the Robert Wyatt version which I remember John Peel playing loads in the early 80s.
    As a songwriter myself I feel strongly about giving the correct writers/contributors credit, so I have mentioned those in the video title.

    However I haven’t even listened to Elvis Costello singing this, I had a quick listen to the start of Elvis singing it live in a youtube video, but it didn’t grab me the way Robert’s version does.

    It’s an absolutely beautiful song and Robert’s fragile vocals just set it off.

    Plainly beautiful!

    Nicely shot, well played, and I love the backing vocals!

    Thank you Craig for sharing :)

    Thanks strongcomet

    Glad you like it, you being an administrator and all.

    I now have 64 videos on youtube, but I don’t really get a lot of views compared to others so I’m having to resort to blatent, shameless self promotion.
    I don’t like having to do this, but it seems i have to, if I want people to see my vids.

    Cheers again

    Usually I don’t allow non direct Wyatt related videos uploaded here, but your version did stand out, Admin or not, I really like it. Hope you’ll stand out, out there as well. I will sure check you out…

    Good Luck!
