The recording from her 2007 album “Children Running Through” is a sparse arrangement, which creates the beauty of the song. It starts with a lone piano track by Ian McLaughin who was the keyboardist formerly with the Small Faces and their successor, The Faces. On the second verse, Glenn Worf’s acoustic bass and a string quartet joins McLaughin and Griffin.
It is in an interesting key for the instrumentation – “B.” A half step either direction would have been easier to play, but a half step higher to “C” would have been the easiest for the piano, bass, and the strings. It is a very nice recording that reminds us all that that mountain top is just ahead.
