Friday fanfare: “No One is to Blame”

Here’s another piece from the 1986 Prince’s Trust concert. This one didn’t make the cut for the VHS tape of the concert that I wore out back in the late 1980s and early 1990s. What annoys me is that the tape did include two different versions of Paul Young’s “Every Time You Go Away” for no compellingly good reason (the second had George Michael duetting with Young), but didn’t include this or a bunch of other songs. Bastards.

Anyhow, here’s Howard Jones doing one of his hits, “No One is to Blame,” complete with (as expected) great piano work by keyboard master Jones, as well as (less expected, but in character) a superb Mark Knopfler guitar solo. Note also the great percussion work by Ray Cooper…..
