cranky's current selection is:
The Palace Of Versailles
by Al Stewart
Bonjour my darlings.

More famously known for his excellent 'Year Of The Cat', Mr Stewart was a bit of a favourite of mine during the 1970's. This track is from the follow up album 'Time Passages'.

Of course, this being released in 1978 during the height of Punk/New Wave, and me being a teenager, I could not admit to owning it as any glimmer of street cred I had would be snuffed out and I would endure a savage beating from my mates. The record would then be destroyed in front of me in some sort of crazed 'Kill the Hippy' type exorcism.
So this would be played in the wee hours then carefully put back in its sleeve and placed behind the wardrobe where, in later years, it would be joined by 'Dollar'.

Have a great weekend folks.
