Read here for more. I really do appreciate these words and commentary on the latest album and the track 'Stand By Me'. My sister reminded me that when she first heard it she cried. It is the tune that we mostly recall our father singing. It did transport us immediately to the life where both Mum and Dad were in it! We have each other and we have sweet memories to keep us smiling. Indeed both parents are beside us. Hence, Stand By Me!
