There’s been quite a lot of high level working out of Prefab Sprout Music recently, including Steven Bennett’s wonderful guitar adaptation videos in the Facebook “Paddy McAloon and Prefab Sprout” group, which one day I hope to collate here.
But this has just turned up on Facebook, and is absolutely lovely. A keyboard adaptation of “Pearly Gates”, pretty much note perfect, and with full sheet music. One hundred percent recommended. It’s fascinating: when the music is stripped back, you realise just how clever it is melodically and harmonically.
