I was wondering who is speaking in the beginnning? Is that the father cycling back home from his visit to London?

Yes, that's my idea, too.

Did someone already listen to the Dolby Atmos mix?
To me there is a huge difference. The whole stage broadens up and there is a huge deep bassdrum sound which is barely audible in the normal mix.

In fact all songs sound much more different in Dolby Atmos. Unfortunately I didn't find the time yet to compare them A:B.

Haven't listened to the Atmos mix of the EP but having got the Atmos bluray of ODR there will be a huge difference in sound!

The song could be easily about Nipper Pat Daly?
But the article on wikipedia doesn't say anything about "his father cycling to pay a visit to his son".
Anyone read the book "Born To Box" to say more about it?

This song evokes the same feelings in me as "Pale Imitation" I know it tells a different story, but for me it's the same level of sensitivity and nostalgia. One of the highlights of the last session. For me, this is a song forever.
I know the way I can see by the moonlight
Clear as the day
Now come on woman, come follow me home

I really like it too, there's a certain melancholy about it that's probably Mark's own memory, who knows.
The Boy EP could be a musical, perhaps Mark has a project of that kind?
If I realised that the chances were slim,
How come I'm so surprised when the tide rolled in

MK has stated that he hates musicals, too.
On the other side I sensed that he quite enjoyed the creative cooperation with Daniel Evans from what the later recounted.
So, if at all, Evans could be the one tempting him into doing something again in connection with theatre/musical theatre in the future.

Well, the theme of boxing booths in the UK during that time could be something to talk about, not only in a musical but in a play or a movie, I guess there might be some already.
You might get lucky, now and then
