Foreign Land - Walk a Lonely Road 
(Doherty/Richards)

I really like the way this song creeps in from silence through the wide echoing sounds with Alice's vocal soaring above it all to the hammer dulcimer and hurdy-gurdy intro and finally the fiddle kicks in and then the distorted guitar power chords on the chorus - ah, folk music!

You can't hear it, but Max was double-tracked on the fiddle - yes, he's so good that both tracks were identical! Pat provides the ghostly whisper.
