Our big tour with Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel is just around the corner. So we decided it’s only fitting to cover our favourite song and at the same time title track of the album “The Best Years Of Our Lives“. We consider the live performance of this song, especially the one on Steve’s first live album “Face to Face” one of the most touching live moments in rock history. It clearly shows why he belongs to the exclusive circle of live entertainers who can mesmerise an audience in style without having to play cheap tricks. On the upcoming November tour the “The Best Years Of Our Lives” album will be performed from beginning to end, celebrating its 40 year anniversary.
We decided to go for an acoustic version of this song, and to give it our own spin we added some harmonies and a blues harp solo. The video was quite a quick shot this time because we’d rather spend our time on practising for the tour at the moment ;). So the whole shooting was done on an early morning at the coast of Crosby (the place where you can see Gormley’s Iron Men).
Come up and see us play with Steve and his fantastic band at one of the 17 UK dates. We will be joining his backing band on guitars, percussion and voices, as well as play a couple of our own songs during his show. The tour kicks off on the 2nd of November! Here you can get all the tour dates and ticket links and more info about Steve Harley on his official website.
Please leave your thoughts and comments on our take on this beautiful song!
We hope you are and will be having a beautiful autumn with lots of yellow and red and sunshine! We’re looking forward to seeing you somewhere sometime in November. This tour will certainly make that month less misty and grey 🙂
