Sometimes beauty is not always the most recognizable piece in the gallery. It is very often the one that does not get first notice.

Touching lyrics, varied song selection, spirited keyboard and vocal performance by Reg, and superb arrangements. Take my word for it, pick this one up Today if you don't allready own.
