Note from Kath: So pleased to see “More Than You Know” on the setlist, can’t wait to hear the Uke Songs cover live. [I was a geek for Barbra Streisand's lovely version from the 1975 film Funny Lady - (sequel to Funny Girl) a Fanny Brice biopic in which her relationship with the song's lyricist figured heavily.  Don't know how or why Ed chose to put it on his record, but...love it. Sorry, had to let that out. :) ]
