Dr. Clarke contributed a poem to the Guv's ReNewell tribute CD. I don't believe his performance was released on any other album but here's a link to the text.
What the link lacks is Clarke's CD introduction, my transcription of which I offer for the pub-lic good:
Martin Newell, the hardest working man in show business.
Gardener by day, poet by night.
"The Hardest Working Man In Show Business"
I know that title normally belongs to Mr. James Brown but he has many titles -
"Soul Brother Number One, The Funky President, Mr. Please Please, Mr Dynamite" -
so I think he can spare one of those titles.
So Mr. Martin Newell - Gardener by day, poet by night,
the hardest working man in show business.
The Godfather of Soil, Martin Newell
