The David McWilliams classic song is re-made and released by Belfast-based singer/songwriter Brian Houston. It's already been a hit single for other artists and the hope was that it would do the same for Brian but sadly it hasn't dented the Top 40 so Brian still remains "the man most likely to. . ." It's a great version and the single also features a gorgeous live version of "Red Badge Of Courage", a song penned in tribute to his wife who battled and won against cancer. The single also includes a brand new song "Your Love Is" recorded in Brian's home studio. It's gentle, understated and reflective of I Corinthians 13. The result is another classy release while we wait for his next album. I've observed it before and I'll say it again, it's a travesty that Houston is not a household name.

What can l say the biggest load of RUBBISH and thats being kind he has murdered this song of davids. He thought because its a classic and was a hit for almond et al that he could get into the charts on the back of the song its self but you need to be able to sing first which he can't let alone talk.
