STYLE: Pop RATING OUR PRODUCT CODE: 21985- LABEL: Independent FORMAT: Cassette Single
Reviewed by Tony Cummings
This cassette single has been recorded and released to raise funds and awareness for Streetkids UK, the British arm of a Brazilian Christian charity, SBUNE, involved in the life and death work of street kid rescue. Neil writes that this recording was "knocked out in three hours (for £20) at a local 8-track". With all that going for it I'd have loved to have reported this was a classic. Instead, Neil's singing (particularly his painful pitching on the phrase "so within our hearts") is quite dreadful. The rudimentary synth backing doesn't help either.
