The old 50s pop tune is given the full works by this top ranking Irish combination. Personally, as it's a song I've never cared for it's difficult to get enthusiastic. However, it will be interesting to see how well it does. They are certainly a delightful combination both on disc and on stage. "Just Walking In The Rain" is the old Johnny Ray hit which Daniel does solo. Mary Duff then reworks the old Sheeter Davis 60s pop hit "The End Of The World", but then they duet on the old country gospel classic "Will The Circle Be Unbroken". This is really something to savour, in fact when I first heard them do it live on Daniel's recent Christmas tour, not only did it make me sit up, I thought it was stunning! Gospel songs have been highlights in both Daniel and Mary's stage acts, but a bit thin on disc. Having done a fine Christmas album maybe a gospel album will soon come from Ireland's top entertainers.
