BB Cooper? IP: 188.8.131.52 Posted on June 9, 2018 at 10:32:01 PM by ageing ted
I suppose it's flattering to be attached to high fashion. More flattering if they compensated...
'Patchwork' is included on the superb John Relph discography under "various artists compilations". A page that also documents a truly anomalous CD - 'The Music of BB Cooper', wherein Martin has written lyrics to a pair of songs with music by theatrical composer Ms. Cooper, sung by UK jazz personages Ian Shaw and Polly Gibbons. Quite successfully may I add.
Martin has written words to someone else's music (Francois Ribac) but he sang them himself. Conversely Martin has written words for someone else's voice (Richard Shelton) but he also wrote the music. This Cooper project seems to be a rare occasion of Martin being one of three separate contributors. Unless there's a glaring example that I'm too lazy to research.
