Tracklisting

(JP: 'These records always end at the wrong time, just as I was in the middle of a rather unpleasant nose-blowing exercise.')
(JP: 'Guitars twang, the sun shines, all is right with the world. Well obviously only a fool would believe that, but at the same time it's nice to, every once in a while, think along those lines.')
(JP: 'Not an easy one to sing along with, I'd have thought.')
(JP: 'Perhaps not quite as exciting as it sounded last night when I was putting this programme together.')
(JP: 'Ah, I'm a fool for a steel guitar.')

Footnotes
  1. Played by mistake instead of Optigonally Yours (see below).
  2. Captain Beefheart cover.
  3. Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark cover.
  4. This song contains the lyrics, "There is surely nothing worse than washing sieves/With the possible exception of being Garth Crooks," prompting the following from John: "I don't know if they've ever actually met Garth Crooks. I did once and he was a deeply unpleasant man, I have to say, so quite clearly they've hit on the right person in this case."
  5. Jonathan Richman cover.
