Q. Dear Oracle,

Who is singing the backing vocals in the "2000 miles is very far through the snow..." part of 2000 Miles? It sounds like Chris singing lead and backing vocals.

Thank you very much!

The Oracle replies:

It is indeed Chris singing both lead & backing vocals - and playing piano of course. Chris recorded this whilst on tour in the U.S - in New York I seem to recall.

For those who haven't heard it, it's a beauty. It's on our timeline - click the 2003 December musical note icon.
