Music from Our Tube: Robert Wyatt’s cover of “At Last I Am Free”

Last Sunday-evening while making the beds, listening to Charlotte Adigéry’s very enjoyable radioshow on Stubru, I heard “At last I Am Free”. Turns out Robert Wyatt actually covered this pretty uncharacteristic Chic-song, but I prefer his version:

Music from Our Tube; Everything but the Bearded Man

Before Ben Watt and Tracey Thorn joined forces as Everything but the Girl in 1982, the then 19 year old Ben Watt recorded the EP “Summer Into Winter” with Robert Wyatt. I did not know that, but I heard the haunting “Slipping Slowly” from that EP on East Village Radio yesterday:
