A classic wrist-slasher…

I don’t know what attracts me to these wrist slashing songs. Maybe I’m just a big ole softie at heart! Anyway, check this one out from 1974. I got it on a K-Tel LP called ‘Bobby Dazzler’. It cost me $4.99 and I used a gift voucher for CC Records I’d been given at Christmas time.

This song always touched me, even as a teenager. I found it tonight on some bizarre website. Obviously taken from a vinyl single or album – you can hear the pops, crackles and jumps. I tried to clean it up but it’s still a bit shocking. I threw it together with some screen grabs of the lyrics and the cover of Bobby Dazzler and the original Nana Mouskouri LP it appeared on, An American Album.

‘Danny Come Home’ – listen to it and try not to slash your own wrists… (James, I blame your religion for the situation this poor woman finds herself in!)
