Buried Treasure: The Way We Live

A Candle For Judith, Dandelion UK, 1971, £375+

Physical education instructor/multi-instrumentalist Jim Milne and part-time painter/poet Steve Clayton formed Rochdale-based beat group The Way We Live in 1966.

Performing primarily as a two-piece, they certainly paid their dues before receiving the recognition of John Peel, who signed them to his cult label Dandelion Records. Nowadays A Candle For Judith (dedicated to Clayton’s wife) is arguably the most expensive and sought-after release from the Dandelion catalogue.
