A letter arrived today from an old friend in Galloway And in it was a photograph - well two to be exact - of this - lets call her  - a very bonnie lass 

This is Joan Ure, also known as Betty Clark, and she is the woman who wrote the lyrics for STAY WITH IT BABY and WHEN I SAY YOU OWE ME NOTHING 
I owe her a lot 
It was Betty who set me off writing my own songs And she had very clear ideas about what she liked so I hope she would have been pleased with how they sound

They can be heard in the recently uploaded BLUES OF A SORT on Bandcamp at
