Here is another reworked version of a previous artwork (N.73), starring both sisters Kimberley Flynn and Charlotte Bennett as cover stars. « Why So Close », taken from the 1986 James album Stutter, is a darkly hypnotic melody with striking harmonies and driving guitar, a singalong acoustic version of the « Fire So Close » track of James' debut single Jimone in 1983 and the Village Fire EP. Same song but totally rearranged as a folk acoustic tune. As mentioned in the NME, ’Why So Close' is a kind of protest song, questioning the wisdom of creating, in nuclear power, a force that humankind cannot control ». The track is « sonically lovely but lyrically rooted in the era of Reagan » wrote Stuart Malcony in Folklore. As mentioned on OOTT website, the song was brought back into the setlist for the 2011 orchestra tour.
