I'd never heard this version, which was recommended by my husband. Paul Carrack apparently does loads of cover versions of popular songs. Some of them seem to be better than the originals. This is one of those. Great song, & excellent singer.
paul carrack,s version of "when my little girl is smiling" is very good but craig douglas version got to number 1 around 1961 and was also covered by jimmy justice at same time..the 60s music i remember first time around so i guess i am bias but its great to see these songs stand the test of time..
