An all-time Stewart/Gaskin favourite which was a popular 'turntable hit' in 1983, featuring an incredibly detailed arrangement and a radiant vocal performance from Barbara. One of the most complex and engaging arrangements to come out of the Stewart/Gaskin camp, this song is guaranteed to put a smile on your face, and the beautiful, spacy ballad on the B-side might well bring a tear to your eye. Remastered versions of the A and B-side appear on the CD album <a href="https://www.burningshed.com/store/davebarb/multiproduct/326/1909/">Broken Records - The Singles (Special Edition)</a>. Dave and Barbara's sleeve notes for <a href="https://www.burningshed.com/store/davebarb/multiproduct/326/1910/">As Far As Dreams Can Go (Special Edition)</a> include details on the making of 'Busy Doing Nothing'.
