All right, I'll come clean, never heard London Conversation. But, I remember when summer seemed primal and pagan and hearing John Martyn spinning out a thread of gently-crackpot whimsey called Sing A Song Of Summer from the album The Tumbler on Johnny 'Guru' Peel's show 1) way back sometime then and snaffling a copy of that artifact with all due schoolboy speed.
