Tune was recorded by Gavin Bryars in 1971 for Alan Powers' documentary.
One day Gavin left studio for a cup of coffee while the song played back in a loop, and when he was back, he noticed that people around are moving slowly, some sitting alone, weeping. He realized the emotional power of this music and added orchestral accompaniment to it.
Tramp has died before he could hear Gavins' work. Gavin said: "... the piece remains as an eloquent, but understated testimony to his(tramp) spirit and optimism".
In 1993 Tom Waits offered his voice for the remix. He lost his original 25 min. LP version from '71. The new version was made on a CD and run 70 min.
P.S. Sound in stereo. Please use headphones for the best result!
