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, Mary J Blige & 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 3 Top 10 singles. The No 1 Hit ‘You to Me are Everything', Can't Get by Without You’ & 'Can You Feel the Force' and all these tracks are still featured daily on all the major UK Radio stations.
