This is still a standout track on the album....So simple, yet so powerful....

Think Glenn Wharf said of another of MK's tunes - 'you feel as if you've always known it' which I think can apply to Drovers Road. The tune has a very 'olde Worlde' sound about it, mysterious even... Nonetheless it is a classic!
