Rick's Perspective
This was the single taken from the new Gospels and was performed live on the National Lottery programme to one of the best responses ever to a musical spot on the programme. I would love to re-record this with a bigger choir and a changed arrangement as well.
Wakey's Verdict
This single had everything going for it except financial backing!! It had blanket radio play throughout the country.
Little Known Trivia
More than 50,000 people tried to buy the single in record stores for the two days after the broadcast but there had been no money to press it up in preparation and the bank had refused to loan us the money. The outcome was we had just 2,000 to sell!
