If You Want It, taken from Andy White's album Songwriter', stars a dinosaur, a snail, and Andy's drawing hand.
Following the Scorsesian epic quality of No Way Out, in which we followed the travails of an intrepid Tasmanian Devil and his flight from captivity, comes this Crichtonian struggle for survival as a lost world from prehistory comes face to face with the present.
If You Want It was written with Allison Russell (Po' Girl, The Birds Of Chicago), who shares lead vocals with Andy and features Paul Rigby on pedal steel, Radoslav Lorkovic on piano and Hammond, and John Raham on drums, who also engineered in Vancouver, Canada.
Andy claims this video clip was the only way he could be sure that everyone got the words of the song - but then he didn't reckon on his 'artistic-yet-as-clear-as-a-doctor's' handwriting. And—yes—he makes several mistakes!
The album Songwriter is one disc in the twelve-CD box set of all Andy's studio albums being reissued on the 30th anniversary of his debut, this coming October.
