Robert Wyatt: Mongrel Musics
Cynthia Rose, NME, 8 September 1984
Nobody could have told me how Robert Wyatt's cover of Cuban pop star Pop star Pablo Milan´es' 'Yolanda' was going to capture my ear more tenaciously than any double-edged love song since Smokey Robinson's summer masterpiece 'And I Don't Love You'.
But certainly no-one could have warned me that Wyatt's work is done for the same reason as Eddie Van Halen's.
