Latimer wanted to redo the track simply because of the slightly flat guitar note in the beginning of the solo. The rest of the band, along with producer Rupert Hine and Phil Collins urged him to maintain the track as is.

I was listening to this in my car today, window rolled down, man pulled next to me and said “who’s that it sounds great”.

Impresionante me encata el sonido de su guitarra, preciosa.

@danjulification agreed on that

and i thought snow goose was brilliant this has just blew me away bloody fantastic

@GAFFTV *”Daisy” and no it hadn’t crossed my mind, my comment was without gender bias, gaylordery of male or female persuation, its all the same :P

@danjulification Never thought that someone with “Diasy” in there Youtube name could be a girl? Or are you so into men yourself you didn’t notice that? ;)

Either way I’m a bloke and agree fully with said comment. This music is beautiful and touching. For those who daren’t admit it, shame on you! This IS music!

Please go to SuperRoostie!!! I’m so desperate for comments and views, pleeeeease! Think of the children!

@danjulification quoted for truth!!!! HAHAHA!!

ih, oi, gustavo xD tava ouvindo ela no computador e pensei “po, vo por no facebook” e acabei de reparar que vc que deu o up. irado ,;)

@daisyros1 i know what you’re trying to say but you sound like a complete gay lord trying to say it.

This music is so incredible. I’ve listened to almost every version and prefer the ending of the original, because he starts you out slow, climaxes and reaches out and grabs your soul with the intensity, holds you there, and then brings you back down to where your emotions are spent and have traversed the entire realm of human emotion. What an incredibly beautiful portrait of his soul; it never fails to resonate deep inside me and move me..

Listened then and still listening now, still moves,
just great stuff.

Happy I bought their LP’s many years ago . and wherever I move to, this will always be with me !

This is a great song, which kind of reminds me of a band I’ve heard a few days ago, Aperco. Hear the similarity at their channel apercoband

Maravilloso, Fantastico…No me canso de escucharlo, verlo tocar así me llora el corazón… simplemente me emociona !!!! Awesomeeeeeeeee………….!!!!!!

wow, just in awe of this performance. I wished Andy could perform again…just like what was said, thank you Andy for many many hours of joy that you have brought to us…Thank You Sir!
