"At Last I Am Born"
(Morrissey/Michael Farrell)


This song was very likely written shortly before or during the recording sessions for the "Ringleader Of The Tormentors" album, which took place at Forum Music Village in Rome between September and November 2005, with producer Tony Visconti. Musicians on this recording were Boz Boorer (guitar, saxophone, et al.), Alain Whyte (guitar), Jesse Tobias (guitar and crash cymbals), Gary Day (bass), Matt Chamberlain (drums) and Michael Farrell (piano, organ, keyboards, trumpet, trombone, percussion). The song also features a children's choir.
