Review by Paul Monkhouse for MPM
If ever there was an anthem that captures the zeitgeist, this is it. Rebecca Downes and Steve Birkett have once again proved to be one of the most potent combinations in the UK music scene, matching a sublimely soulful voice with some of the best and most understatedly nuanced guitar playing you’ll hear all year.
Sure, this is a standard that is so well known by millions around the globe that it’s lost some of its gloss through constant repeat plays but here the duo bring something wonderful, intimate and beautiful to the perfectly written and constructed classic.
Even better, the track is available as a free download from Rebecca’s website but, adding a cherry onto that particular cake, you’re encouraged to make a donation to the brilliant and much vital Dementia UK charity in means of a voluntary payment.
Are you still there, reading this? Get over, download and give. Without doubt, one of the finest gifts you’ll receive or give this Christmas.
