There's suggestion he played 2 songs at that Birdlife event. I wonder was the other one Birds In Your Garden (thematically similar and very melodic like Cuckoo...maybe it actually bumped Cuckoo off consideration for We Love Life ...and also a good one to play solo on an acoustic guitar).

Can't believe no footage has emerged, it would be great to see.

He has to play Cuckoo with the band next year!

But horrible life choices.

Still dreaming a new album that would include all the leftovers from TIH (the demos released in 2006) and WLL demos. There's enough material and it would make a great record.

Just have to do it !

I mean, you are the one, street operator, After you (new version, wasn't too keen on the 2012 one), Got To Have Love, Quiet Revolution, Cuckoo song... already got half on a great record. Such a waste.

Or release a WLL box set, dammit.

I sound angry but actually i'm pretty pleased since Jarvis has released a lot of stuff the past months. But we want more, always, right ? :D

Oddly enough I asked Jarvis about a WLL Deluxe, he didn't comment - might have just blanked me or not heard me.

Honestly compared to the leaked demo I can't stand it....the way the demo builds up & gets going is so life-affirming. I really don't like it, sorry :(

It's a different mood, very much an intimate solo-take. I'm glad different versions exist. Fingers-crossed another one emerges in 2023.

I just can't help but think a real (Chris Thomas?) version might have been that No1 Jarvis so sought in the day? Sadly a No1 would mean nothing in today's climate

I totally agree with James on this one. When I saw this topic, I was expecting a lot more whereas this version sounds like a home demo
