"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

A Little Light Relief

The Foreign & Commonwealth Office
Sir Wilfred Thesiger
Dame Freya Stark
The Singing Sands
The Empty Quarter


  1. Ah! Radio Luxemburg and happier days ...

  2. I haven't heard that song in years but it popped into my mind (obviously too much empty space in there!) Shades of transistor radios under the bedclothes with Luxemburg & Horace Bachelor :-)

  3. Always liked that one, ta.

  4. Was living in a hippie commune in Vancouver BC when this came out. We played it constantly. Sweet memories.
