  • Agree with 'allaboutthemoon' Mr Frank knew the pain in his music. http://www.metafilter.com/94796/A-Singer-Scarred-for-Life
  • this is so beautiful and also so sad when you know Jacksons background.
  • This is a great track, sure, but I would like to hear another song of his, too. Why doesn't Last.fm play songs more randomly? I always get the songs I already listened to. Do you people experience the same?
  • robin pecknold singing this and suddenly the world seems like a place I could live in
  • Brilliant
  • pure classic
  • I'm addicted to this song....
  • lOve.
  • I'm listening to jeansandsummer's radio!
  • This is a lovely song. First heard about him on a BBC Radio programme recently, but a great re-discovery. Recommend likewise Phil Ochs to people who want to rediscover the neglected singer/songwriters of the past.
  • I had forgotten how good he was.
  • nice
  • fab song
  • Living's just a gamble baby, loving's just the same.
  • Fine singer-songwriter hardly mentioned these days. Great song.
  • what version is this? where is it from? I only know the LP version
  • Breaks it all down beautifully... as good as it gets.
  • Prefer the solo guitar and vocals version of this than the version on Last FM, but whatever the arrangement, still an incredibly melancholy and beautiful song.
  • Gorgeous! Never heard of him, but has that bittersweet Nick Drake sound....
  • lovely
  • beautiful sad song.
  • So beautiful.
  • I love this song. :-))
  • Fine tune. :)
  • great, reminds a bit of Tim
  • haven't heard this for years. my dad used to play this song. brings back memories of my parents' parties and folk clubs.
  • livin is a gamble baby, lovin's much the same.. indeed JCF, indeed
  • So very good.
  • dreamy
  • love it.....
  • Great song! [artist]Laura Marling[/artist] made a great [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wONLATZdWBE]cover[/url] of this.
  • Take a bow
  • :))))))))))))))
  • living is a gamble
  • acoustic pleasah'
  • lovely
  • What an amazing song! I just heard Jackson for the first time playing on the sound system in the Komedia, Bath while I was eating a slice of their fab gluten free orange polenta cake.
  • la classe
  • Never heard this before. Glad I heard it today. It came to me right on time.
  • Not worth mentioning the Simon and Garfunkle version, I suppose? Jackson's is brilliant and there would be no debate without his original.
  • i think this is great
  • The guitar accompaniment in the background is off, which is probably why some people don't like it. The song is a melodic song, and someone's playing random blues scales over it, and it doesn't sound right.
  • I pick this version over Jansch and Drake a million times over (and I adore Jansch and Drake)
  • very nice.
  • Listen to this song dying in the single version.
  • Give me the orginal studio recording, please, last.fm.
  • wow
  • I like Bert Jansch version
