J oan released this second, nonalbum single in the late summer of 1973 before breaking her relationship with Cube in the UK. Both tracks are produced by Gus Dudgeon and co-written by lyricist Pam Nestor, which would place them firmly in Whatever’s For Usterday. (In fact, they were later appended to that album as bonus tracks on the 2001 Metro remaster.) They show some slight development: “Lonely Lady” has a bit of bite to it (notably a narsty electric guitar lead), “Together In Words And Music” features mandolin-like sweetness in the mix (light shades of Cat Stevens). Neither are lost gems but rather a pair of lost shoes left behind after the debutante’s ball, soon discarded as outmoded.
