Song of the Day, March 2: How Weak I Am by Gregson and Collister

G&CChangeWeakToday’s song is a brilliant collaboration. Clive Gregson and Christine Collister met while working in the Richard Thompson band. They had instant chemistry, and began working as a duo. After a charming live album and a solid studio debut, they hit their stride with A Change In the Weather, a sterling disc that shows off their individual and collaborative talents. The centerpiece is the Gregson-penned How Weak I Am. A dark ballad of loss and surrender, it’s a perfect fit for Collister’s amazing voice. Gregson opts for spare production, allowing the singer to own the proceedings. It’s a smart decision, and the deep, torchy feel is just the right well for the despair of the song.

Enjoy this amazing track today.
