From the Live session last night (July 2020), what's the title of the "you don't know me // never give up" song and where has it been recorded?

I can't remember how, but I was certainly aware of Dean Reed in the eighties. His rather mysterious death certainly attratced attention in the UK press. Later I read Comrade Rockstar. Reggie Nadelson can't write, if you ask me. I did see the BBC show, which was quite interesting but was not helped by the involvement of La Nadelson. The "house" thing is based on an old East German pop song, where the "house" was clearly supposed to be the DDR itself. You'd probably have to ask Steve Winkler about that one...Pat x

Hi, love your tune on Dean Reed.
1.) so how'd you happen to come across Dean? I'm guessing from the Comrade Rockstar book and/or BBC production(?) We simply can NOT get a copy of the BBC show here in the US, so I haven't seen it.
2.) can you tell me/us the long story?: [you wrote]:
They walked out of the house
with no trouble at all
they walked out of the house
and they went through The Wall
(This is a vile perversion of a sixties DDR pop song about The Wall. It's a long story. )
More tabs please
