It truly was 'the end of the evening' when Roland sat down with some scribbled chords and played the piano part for this waltz-time New Lamps. On to that single take were grafted various quick overdubs, which Dave and Roland left with the 'Doc' and Elly for vocals and mixing. This is how the song came through the mail a few days later.
