… And that’s how Bobby Womack ended up writing “Breezin'”, but has never recorded it himself.
Now then, where was I’ve written ‘Lancaster Cathedral’ down on this piece of paper, what’s that all about?
- Ah yes, a joke.
Once upon a time my Dad went to a sunday service at Lancaster Cathedral as he often does, where they just happened to be renovating one of the doors. The congregation was swelled by group of Spanish tourists from San Sebastian (in the Northern Basque territory) One of the priests is an ex-pupil of my Dad’s and so they lingered a bit to chat, and generally chew the fat.
Watching people leave through the only available door, result of the works. The priest had noticed that the Spanish group had managed to clog the door as they filtered out, still taking photos.
As quick as a flash and dry as you like, he says “That’s what you get when you put all your Basques in one exit!”
