Yesterday an old recording of a Joan Ure lyric appeared from within the mass of unsorted Dropbox files As I say elsewhere, the lyric is one of several which Betty (the name she used when I knew her) gave me to work on - at a time when I was beginning to write my own songs 

Entitled EVERY TIME NOW it has now been professionally mastered to remove extraneous sounds and scratches and has been uploaded as a small single acoustic track on Bandcamp 

The link is https://sheilakcameron.bandcamp.com/track/every-time-now

It will be there because, having been rediscovered, I know how much Joan Ure would like it to be there

Joan Ure was the pen name of Elizabeth Thoms Clark (22 June 1918 – 1978), a Scottish poet and playwright. She was born Elizabeth (Betty) Thoms Carswell on 22 June 1918 in Wallsend, Tyneside, of Scottish parents who moved to Glasgow. Her sister Joan provided the first half of her pen-name. The pen-name Ure was chosen because it sounded more Scottish to her.
