Story image

Together At Last (lyrics: Clive James; music: Pete Atkin) has never been recorded before. This song now has a greater, special poignancy about it, as sung and played by Pete Atkin so brilliantly. Underpinning this recording is also an unassailable, uplifting, soaring spirit, a sense of wide-open future possibilities, of freedom. Clive James died in 2019. So evocative, the song is about good times together, maybe some ups and downs, soulmates travelling on...

Together at last
Buddies on the road
Cain and Abel,
Lombard and Gable,
Rosewall and Hoad
Together at last Soulmates slowly ride
Frank and Jessie,
Billie and Bessie,
Jekyll and Hyde
For I on my own am but one man alone And I know that the same goes for you
But when we team up we are two-gether at last...

Mentioned later in the song are: Ike and Tina, Frederick and Nina, Pope and Dryden, Mozart and Haydn, Clyde and Bonnie, Ronnie and Ronnie, Yoko and John.

Lyrics © Clive James.

Pete Atkin explains how he recently rediscovered Together At Last:

“In 1975, Clive James and I toured the first version of our two-man show. We titled it 'Together At Last', and decided we needed a special closing number. We wrote it in a way that would enable us to alternate the lines, and in a way that would allow Clive to make the most of his vocal abilities. We never recorded it. I knew the lyric was in the archive. I was going through some old notebooks last year when I found I had written down the tune. It is an eminently updatable song, but we didn’t, and I think – and hope – it was the right thing to leave it as it is. And so here it is...”
