"He Knows I'd Love To See Him"


This song was very likely written at some point in 1989. It was recorded during the "Bona Drag" sessions at Hook End Manor in the winter of 1989 into 1990, with producers Clive Langer and Alan Winstanley. Musicians on this recording were Kevin Armstrong (guitar), Andy Rourke (bass) and Andrew Paresi (drums). Session musician Danny Thompson plays double bass, but his input is not credited anywhere the song was released. Mary Margaret O'Hara provided back vocals.
