5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent, 20 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother [Hillsborough Tribute Single 2012] (Audio CD)
These affairs can often fall short of the mark they're aiming for. This surpasses it.

Allan Clarke's original vocal was exceptional and will always be close to the heart. Yet, the Hillsborough Collective version showcases a spate of vocal performances which, meshed so exquisitely by Guy Chambers with the Liverpool Philharmonic's lush orchestration, somehow manage to take the song's emotion up a notch from what The Hollies provided us with.

I will not single out any one vocalist from the Collective - and let's be fair some do merely fall into the decent enough category - but there are some superb cameos and one or two spectacular ones that entice you back for further listens.

As for the video. Well, I await the time I can reach the end without shedding a tear.

So a huge thumbs up and thank you to all involved - and perhaps a special pat on the back for Steve Rotherham and Peter Hooton who from what I've seen seem to have been that vital glue that has bonded so beautifully into a cohesive entity families, Justice stalwarts and celebrities into providing us with this landmark recording.
