Music today is sticking with the quintessential American album, Don McLean’s American Pie (1971). It features the famous title track and one of Olivia’s favourite songs, Vincent. I once went to his house and met his wife because my bassist Hannah’s mum was working with her on some photography. It was a mansion in Maine. This song came out as a seven-inch single and because it had so many verses Side 1 faded out, you flipped it and Side 2 faded in. Those Were The Days, wait, that’s Mary Hopkin.
