 If I'm right there is a slightly different version of this track on the "v" complilation.

 The below version (in You Tube) is the demo, not the issued version. Quite similar but not as polished.

By the way, Newman was the singer and writer of the group July as well as the one-off Song Repair Company.

 Good grief, I’d forgotten how this song can lift the spirits. Where are me sandals? It was Tom that first brought Oldfield's demo of Tubular Bells to the attention of Richard Branson. He went on to co-produce and engineer the album. At the same time, ’72 – ’74, he was laying down tracks for what was to become his ‘Fine Old Tom’ album. Not greatly appreciated at the time, I bought my copy with press notes for ten bob, but a lovely thing all the same. ‘Sad Sing’ was one of the two tracks that Oldfield sat in on, he plays "Two acoustic guitars Electric twiddles 3rd & 4th verse". ‘Ma Song’ is the other track. There he provides "Keith Richards type guitar solo". Before all this Tom was part of July (1969), as featured at 92003 etc. I particularly liked their ‘Jolly Mary’. Apologies for not trimming the A Side Label, but I have warm nostalgic feeling for those ridges, they’re part of what made English records English.
