Cover of The Definitive Rod Stewart

From The Definitive Rod Stewart and 45 other releases

According to the Sailing Songfacts, Stewart recorded his version of this Sutherland Brothers song at the Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama with a choir assembled by Bob Crewe, The Four Seasons’ producer. It became his third UK chart-topper and the following year, it was revived following it’s use as the theme music for a BBC TV documentary series about the HMS Ark Royal, this time peaking at #3. The combined sales of the 2 releases meant this is Stewart’s biggest ever selling single in the UK with 955,111 copies sold.
