Office girl here....
Franck asked Edwyn to write a melody and lyrics to a complex backing track he had. He's a complicated guy...the whole of this album is very intricate. Edwyn recorded his vocal, including harmonising with himself, in one day. I have always loved it, lost my only copy, but Franck sent us another recently, and Susan (other office girl) fell for it.

Another lost Edwyn classic is "Don't you ever listen to me?" (written especially for ... ?) which was released on an Australian CD called "Four hours sleep". It's a gem in the mode of "Keep on burning".
I've never heard of it being played live but it's up there with everything on the current set list.
Saw Edwyn playing in Preston and Liverpool last weekend. Great shows, the only things i didn't like were "Don't shilly shally" ... (never liked that one!) and Pale Blue Eyes (rumbles on forever) but otherwise very very inspiring.
