Taken from the limited edition 4 CD special edition of Bruce’s 4 acoustic sessions – 2020.
‘When I introduced this song in the solitary confines of my attic studio last year, it suddenly struck me that the title doesn’t exactly exude sunshine. ‘ ‘The One You Left to Die’ is, as you might have guessed, a little bit dark. It’s a song about choices and regret. But nevertheless, it was great fun to play again after so many years. And it was also great fun to have a ‘jam’, even if the person I was jamming with was myself! Still, it seemed to sum up the atmosphere of the time quite nicely, in a positive way.’ Bruce Soord
