May You Never / Just Now (1971)

May You Never(Island WIP 6116, November 1971)

Early and rare version of May You Never, a song for John’s son, featuring drums and back-up guitar. This version is very different from that which appears on Solid Air.

John didn’t like the way the recording had turned out and left the producer to overdub and piece it all together. There is some discussion as to who actually plays with John for this single, for many years it has been suggested Paul Kossoff accompanies John on guitar. I asked John about this and as far as he can remember John ‘Rabbit’ Bundrick plays keyboards and Kossie played guitar… but as John says it was a long long time ago!

A rare single and very hard to find. If you ever see one buy it!
