40 Year Itch: Under the Sun

   Alan Price, the former keyboard player with the Animals, followed up his O Lucky Man! soundtrack with Between Today and Yesterday, an autobiographical album he re-recorded four times before Warner Brothers finally released it. The album is broken up into two distinct sides. One marked Yesterday and the other marked Today. 

   "Jarrow Boy" was the UK#6  hit single but "Under the Sun" is the song that caught me by surprise on a drive home the other day. Price's voice breaks as he sings a lovely song of farewell. "Don't cry" he sings repeatedly. Dare you not to. Coldplay should cover this. This, unfortunately, is the only YouTube video with the song.
