referencing The Familiar, CD, Album, CAROL 6601-2
'Our Man In Havana' is the standout track on this album. In Canada, it was issued on the Cargo Records compilation 'Alternative Route 94' and, years later, used in a car commercial. It's a very nice composition for strings (maily) but there is also a synth line in the middle, and one funny question (open to interpretation): 'Would you live to have a coffee mister Smith?'.
The rest of this album is built with the same instruments, but the initial feeling of 'Our Man' is kind of diluted. A sense of sadeness and melancholia later appear (on & off) and tone down the humor of the overture.
