Amen Corner – (If Paradise Is) Half As Nice

A very pretty pop song that would be merely a very pretty pop song were it not for the glorious “la la las” and Andy Fairweather-Low’s naively soulful voice.

(In recent years, Fairthweather-Low has been employed as a guitar player [a very good guitar player, apparently] in Eric Clapton’s band. Which is a shame because this performance alone is better than anything ‘Slowhand’ has ever been involved in. Apart from, perhaps, Layla’s lovely coda and a handful of Cream songs.)

  1. I have to say, I never realised Andy Fairweather-Low was in Amen Corner.

    Love this song – a bit different to the only other AFL song I knew before today http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k5FG3Ty3jD4
