THE REAL THING with original vocalists CHRIS AMOO and DAVE SMITH are on tour promoting their first new album of original material in 44 years ‘A Brand New Day’ which hit No 3 in Amazon best sellers.
They also have their new soulful single ‘Hang On Never Let Go’. This track will be special for all the lovers who grew up listening to their classic hits.
On the reverse of this single is a live version of their classic composition ‘Children of the Ghetto’ which has been covered by the likes of Courtney Pine, Paul Hardcastle, Mart J Bligh and Philip Bailey. This is the first time that a recording of this track has been made featuring lead vocals by Chris Amoo.
THE REAL THING enjoyed success in both the 70’s & 80’s with three Top 10 singles, the No 1 hits ‘You To Me Are Everything’, ‘Can’t Get By Without You’ and ‘Can You Feel The Force’ – all these tracks are still featured daily on all the major UK Radio stations. They also have around one million plays or more on Spotify each month.
A hit movie ‘Everything’ which played nationally in cinemas, was also aired on TV with BBC, Chanel 4 in August 2020. Followed by their Greatest Hits Album which made the official national album charts and reached No 2 in the Amazon download charts.
THE REAL THING are undoubtedly a force to be reckoned with.
