I'm Looking over a four leafed clover ( clover 2)

The words in brackets are because Hugh kindly re engineered the original recording as the two tracks were so unbalanced, the clover 2 was to identify it. It's my attempt to play Blackpool Tower style, move over Reg Dixon, Nigel Ogden and John Bowdler , ( I wish ! )
Played I think on the EL 900 I had at the time.

Ken,

It always interests me to hear the different ways people 'arrange' songs. Your drummer is playing a 'double-beat' quickstep? I reckon you must have got the drummer off Peter Slack, who had given his drummer the push in his last recording on his Korg PA4. The drummer is now trying to prove his worth! We used to play this in the band I was in, and we played the melody twice as fast, so got to ".. four leafed clover" after the second bar of four beats.

I have found two versions of this song on YouTube that interest me, one by Art Mooney, whose recording topped the charts for 18 weeks in 1948. This is more like how we played it. Then the other version is by Liberace on the piano, who gives it the same treatment as you. A 'double-beat' in the left hand.
