Robert Wyatt

Recent delvings into early Elvis Costello have led me to Robert Wyatt‘s version of Costello’s “Shipbuilding,” and to Comicopera, Robert’s acclaimed album from last year. On first listen to the latter, I am amazed, and in a very good way.

But here’s “Shipbuilding,” which sounds as great to me now as it did in 1982.
