Billy Bragg – Levi Stubbs’ Tears (1986)

Quite simply one of the best records ever made.

Pop pickers will appreciate the clumsy segue from the last post by the Stones –  “Just My Imagination” was written by Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong who get a mention by Billy Bragg because they also wrote most of the classic Four Tops tunes, all of which were sung by Levi Stubbs ….. tenuous or what?

When the world falls apart, some things stay in place

Levi Stubbs’ tears ….

A really nice live version from 1991 with the straight LP/single version from 1986 afterwards.
