Noel Harrison

The Windmills of Your

Tex & CP Live in Black Dog (Live 2013)

Digital download

Noel Harrison's last ever live performance was in the village of Black Dog in Devon on October 19, 2013. Shortly after the show, he suffered a heart attack and later died in hospital.

In 2014, his wife, Lori, decided to release the recording of the show for fans to download for free.

The 90 minute performance features 23 tracks and includes Noel's final performance of his signature tune, The Windmills of Your Mind.

Other songs from the show include all of the tracks from his last album, Six Songs and others from the album Hold Back Time.

The highlight of the concert however comes after the crowd demands an encore and Noel plays an emotionally charged version of Willie Nelson's 1975 hit, Blue Eyes Cryin' in the Rain.

Speaking about the final song in a radio documentary in 2014, Noel's son, Will, said: "This is the very last song that he ever played in his life and when I listened back to the show I was in tears listening to it I have to confess."

By Noel's wife, Lori:

This is a live audio recording of the gig Noel did the night before he died. From what I heard he put everything he had left into this show and was supremely happy with the results. For the encore Noel had chosen Willie Nelson’s “Blue Eyes Cryin’ in the Rain”, a song I’m not aware of him ever doing in public before … how perfect he left us doing what he loved most. We should all be so lucky!
