Jane and Edward Barton: Jane and Barton


Cherry Red 1983.  MRED53


My liking for Edward Barton sets me apart from most people on this planet, but with his abrasive delivery removed, the beauty of his songs is more obvious to everyone else.  This mini album deals with that by having his (then) girlfriend, Jane Lancaster do most of the vocals.  The best known track, It’s A Fine Day appeared here a long time ago, and the rest of the album is similarly haunting.

  1. Thanks a lot!
    Strange & Beautiful 🙂

  2. Recognising \”It\’s a Fine Day\” when Orbital sampled it gained this old man a lot of kudos; owning the vinyl even more so. Thanks once again for providing me with a digital copy. We will have salad.

  3. I don’t think my Barton vinyl has ever earned me any Kudos…

    It’s a shame I didn’t buy a new copy of this – my second hand one crackles a bit.
