He arches a quizzical eyebrow. But I must persist in that matter. A skilled draughtsman, like his art lecturer father, after his discharge from hospital he learned to draw again using his left hand, developing a ritual of copying a different illustration each day from nature books. His first effort, of a wigeon duck, was crude and childlike, but over time he recovered his ability.
He shows me his most recent sketches, taking particular pride in his guillemot drawing. I ask to see today's picture. I pointing this out to Collins, who chuckles. It was ironic that Collins' hospitalisation during coincided with a renewed interest in Orange Juice, following Domino records' compilation of their early Postcard recordings, The Glasgow School. However, Collins' own feelings towards the distant past are surprisingly unsentimental.
But it's over with," he says firmly. On to the new. It's a beautiful record, stylistically encompassing the gamut of Edwyn's career, from the white-soul disco of You'll Never Know, with its shades of vintage Orange Juice, to the wistful acoustic title track.
