RC: This arrangement hopes to bring out the heartfelt dimension to Matthew Fisher's excellent text, which pits a hurt and pleading protagonist against a stonily indifferent lover. 'I know you don't care' is the heart of the lyric and I hope I can be forgiven for recycling these words at the end of the track, and in confecting a middle-eight for it. This just fell under my hands when I first sat at the piano to play Can't You Feel my Love in compound time (I'd been listening to Janis Joplin, not that there's any audible trace of that in the present recording): I think it fits OK.

It was a great pleasure for Peter and me to put together an instrumental track which, we hope, showcases Franny's emotional and vocal range to the full.
