Mother and Child

[Maddy Prior]

This track (with Maddy Prior, vocals and David Palmer, keyboards) from Maddy Prior's first solo album Woman in the Wings was also released on the Maddy Prior compilation Memento. Later Maddy re-recorded this song with Rick Kemp for their album Happy Families; this was later included in the Park Records sampler A Stroll Through the Park. A live recording from the Maddy Prior, Family & Friends Christmas tour of 1999 was released on the CD Ballads and Candles. Maddy commented in the latter album's sleeve notes:

Generations often find it difficult to talk together. This song is special for me in that I have always loved to sing with Rick's playing of the fretless bass.
