The Further Adventures Of Pearly Spenser

Stuart Bailie | 08:52 UK time, Sunday, 11 October 2009

You probably all know how a guy from Ballymena, David McWilliams, wrote a beautiful song called 'Days Of Pearly Spencer'. It was massive in 1967 across Europe and it was a constant feature on pirate radio. The song was later revived by Marc Almond, who hauled it into the charts in 1992. But I was never aware of an Italian version until now. Have a look of this and note the judicious playing of air violin. I also suspect that Caterina has taken a few liberties with the lyrics.
