This is the first time I’ve recorded a song for the Glass Flesh series of Robyn Hitchcock tributes. “Take This In Remembrance” is an obscure song in a catalog packed with obscurities. Its only official release was on a CD supplement to an Italian book about Robyn, long out of print.
Robyn’s original recording is sparse and perfect, one guitar and one voice. Mine isn’t:

I highly recommend the first three volumes of Glass Flesh, which can be ordered here, and I will highly recommend volume four as soon as it’s released. From the official site: Glass Flesh is a world-wide Robyn Hitchcock tribute project that has seen the creation of multiple cassette and professional CD releases. Participants have included such indie darlings as singer-songwriter Vic Chesnutt and members of the beloved “Elephant 6” collective – including members of such groups as the Decemberists, Elf Power, Marshmallow Coast and others.
