This man deserves far more than he's getting right now in terms of recording deals and contracts. Not only did he fund his own excellent CD earlier this year, Richard's now back cutting more stuff. This is a four track cassette which is all new material and a warm up to another CD next year. This time Richard gets under way with a great uptempo "I Can Do All Things" - it tells of the confidence we have when we're with the Lord and Richard quite simply exudes it. Second track in is "You Mean The World" and RR gets back into the tender trap, working the emotions beautifully, see if you can work out where you may have heard the opening hook before. Then there's a song about who this tape is designed to help, a little lady called Simona who's only three years old. She lives in Romania and the title track is Richard's way of expressing what needs to be done. This so-gifted songwriter certainly has a way with simple lyrics, catchy songs and a distinctive voice.
