The Lenny Anderson Tapes

I worked with the 18 year old Lenny in The Labs during 1992. I loved his voice and wrote two songs for him: Let Me Sleep and When Can I Expect to be Happy. We also did a 4/4 time version of The Beatles' She's Leaving home. The two original songs were presented to Rick Astley's manager, that year, for Mr Astley to sing. Although the manager thought they were the best tracks he'd been presented with, his protege had decided to start writing his own stuff -and that was that. So there you go.

This is a new/old song. Written in 1982 for Walter Mitty's Little White Lies, but never recorded except for a lost demo and maybe the odd live recording. Sufficeth to say I don't have a version - but it was always a favourite of mine. So I've made my own version.

The Tables was an attempt to create a lost Beatles' anthology. The idea of local BBC radio. Great being a pretend Beatle for a lunchtime. Well - maybe not Ringo. Sorry Ringo
