    Lovely song.I Performed this is our National Concert Hall in Dublin April 18th last as part of a show called Love is the Strangest Thing. Kate is still remembered and loved in Ireland.

    I had this on a vinyl album back in the 80′s but, whilst I can still find ‘Dancers with bruised knees’ sadly I can’t find this album. Well done ladies, you’ve entertained me for some 30-odd years.

    Found it!

    Went for yet another search through my (archived) vinyl and Eureka!

    Can’t wait to get it back on the turntable :-)

    Eric et alii,

    What album was this actual recording on? I have been looking for this for years but I only find different versions of the song, not the one used in the video above.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    Why is this song ( simple version by Kate ) not recorded anywhere as a single mp3 file ??? There are some other versions, but not this ( simple, unadorned ) version ( ? )

    Hi,

    Because Warner/Rhino owns the master of this song which was on Kate and Anna’s 3rd record, Pronto Monto. Pronto Monto is now available on CD from Omnivore which they license from Warner, but Warner did not grant a license for the digital download rights to Omnivore, they retain them for themselves but they don’t make them available. End of story. Sorry.
