Link didn't work for me but i found it on YouTube and it's available to buy on Amazon music.
Ralph McTell plus the Crisis homeless choir and guest vocal Annie Lennox.

Great song. Great cause.
Hope people go buy it.
I am x

Thank you ConorMcGregorsChin

sorry the link did not work. I'll try again

that doesn't look like it worked either, but should be possible to copy and paste it?

Or maybe some one cleverer than me can post working link!

I've shared it on my Facebook page, would be good if everyone did it. I've not seen much publicity for it so let's do a bit of free marketing for them.

Greenshoots1 Sat 16-Dec-17 08:33:24

Thank you Saladtongs. That is a really nice thing to do

I've shared on my fb page and donated a £1 for every friend I have and asked them to donate the same.

One of my favourite songs. Than you for sharing. Excellent cause.

Greenshoots1 Sat 16-Dec-17 14:27:13

Thank you so much rizlett

Greenshoots1 Sat 16-Dec-17 17:02:12

And thank you Crumbs, its doing ok in the Amazon chart, but I don't know how representative that is.

BoreOfWhabylon Sat 16-Dec-17 17:09:26

Oh gosh, am bawling here - heading off to Amazon now.

(and amazing that Ralph McTell sounds so good 50 years after he first recorded this!)

it makes me a bit tearful too. I know one of the guys in the head shots quite well, he is such a character

Thank you error xx

I don't really understand George Michael fans pushing "last Christmas" right now - surely George Michael would have so much wanted the Homeless choir to do as well as possible, he certainly wouldn't have wanted "last Christmas" to push them back a place in the charts right now.

Made a donation - hope the song does really well.

Greenshoots1 Sun 17-Dec-17 10:43:51
