Ladybug Transistor - 'Here Comes the Rain'
Live performances rarely do a song justice, especially if the song's heard for the first time. But seek this out, the production is beautiful on record. (Or I'll gladly put it up.)

Can anybody say what the name of the 2nd Anthony and the Johnsons' song is posted by yessitis please?

Also I can't identify the Smiths guitarist in the lovely Aztec Camera song?

Thanks for the perennially perfect Unchained Melody, the angelic Cocteau Twins song, the interesting Flamingos original, and all upto James' reverse Lullaby, which is how far I've got listening till now. :guitar::cool::)
