You Are Never Far Away From Me ( Perry )

Released in the RCA UK album "The Best Of British" ~ original recordings not released on vinyl


Hugo & Luigi Producers


Recorded, remarkably, in three days, this album is a virtual replica of Perry's television segment where he would sit at his stool and sing a medley of requests. All of the medleys contain three songs but each song is a long version and might easily stand on it's own. Most notable within these sessions are two full songs which were excluded from final release, probably for no other reason than the fact that the medley segments worked so well.
