Playlist 478 - Feb 13 2018

Valentines are in the air. We had a few but not the soppy kind.

Manly regret and nostalgia soaked in strings from Richard Hawley.

Stirring moving heartwrenching soul lament from Nina Simone.

Serge & Jane with a glorious JC Vannier arranged paean to love in the margins.

Charlotte Gainsbourg with a gorgeous melancholy love letter to her father.

And Jack Hayter with wonderful quixotic and earthy English folk songs.
