Odd. Never heard of this track before or any supposed bootlegs.
Maybe Albert & Heart of Gold era?
Funny how he says he never explains songs when he pretty much does in every interview

Thks Peter, also on Moonbase.

One of my favorites from Dreamscapes, Great! Worthy of 84-86 bsides.
The DS version is a little bit longer than the 2 new tracks & is dated 88 & credited only to Gold.

It's in Dreamscapes 8, with the name "Those were the days (revisited)".
Btw, we have a really old discussion on the lyrics here.

Many happy returns

Bumped into this version last year, without realising. Here are some screenshots of the full clip from my local library :

Whoever mastered the song did an unbelievably good job. It breathed new life into it...

"We are getting closer. A rebirth reveals new energies and shining beauty with an everlasting core.
Can you hear the light? Can you see the sound? You eventually will.
Stay tuned for more.

And all text is:

We are getting closer. A rebirth reveals new energies and shining beauty with an everlasting core.
Can you hear the light? Can you see the sound? You eventually will.
Stay tuned for more.

Meanwhile please enjoy the next interview excerpt with Gold about an unrevealed mystery:

------------------------------------

Excerpt no.2 from an interview by AudioBlitzen, January 27 1991 with Marian Gold

Blitzen: In the song you are telling about your father. Is this your actual father or a generalising visualization?

Gold: I presume he is my real father and though he appears to be some kind of ghost or spirit inside the song I feel very close to him.

Blitzen: Is he the one who hands you the „costume of the sad acrobat“?

Gold: That is a good question. I'm not sure. But apart from me, he's the only other person mentioned. If it wasn't him, it would be the great mystery of the song.

Blitzen: ...that you will not unravel for us.

Gold: I can't, unfortunately. Or fortunately.

Blitzen: What about the „bread“ and the „wine“?

Gold: They are bitter. And my Dad tries to keep me away from it. If I dined on it I'd become evil. I wouldn't be allowed to wear the costume. And I would never die.

Blitzen: You mean, by consuming this bread and wine, it would make you immortal?

Gold: I'm afraid so.
