As performed by "The Council Quartet" wink

The second best version of this song, the best being the original Paul Weller vocal with a verse sung in French.

In case you didn't know, Dee's ex father in law John Weller died last week. A gentleman amongst the other sharks in band management.

I was going to label it as "The Council Quartet" but I wasn't sure since it was the b-side to See The Day. I'll change it to "Dee C Lee and The Council Quartet" cool


What are the best shops to buy "Mr. Cool's Dream"? I'm looking for it at a good price

I think it's best to buy direct from the author, Iain Munn: http://imunn.magix.net/website/

Even with postage it would probably be cheaper than Amazon as he offers a discount. Tell him Pacey told you about the book and ask him to sign it for you wink

The original and best (imo) version sung by Paul. Recorded in Paris with accordian, a verse in French and backing vocals by respected French session singer Rebecca Bell. The Paris Match doesn't get more "Parisienne" than this version.

The Style Council was a complete departure from The Jam. I wonder which catalogue he favors...

Weller defends The Style Council vehemently to this day - and so he should. They were a cracking band, totally underrated (even now), and totally ahead of their time. Weller anticipated what is now known as r n b with The Cost of Loving and cut a house album when it was still an underground genre.

Anyway, I prefer the Weller sung Paris Match. Then Dee's. Never did like the Cafe Bleu version, even though Tracie Thorn's voice is a thing of exceptional beauty. Never fitted the track.

Sad news about John. He was indeed a great bloke. I met him a few times.
