I have been a great fan of Ralph Mctell since the late 60's and have interviwed him for my website. John Beresford has allowed me to share his description* below with regards to the new version of Streets of London.

*Ralph invited a choir from the homeless charity Crisis at Christmas to sing "Streets of London" with him at his London Palladium concert in October 2017, and they have recorded Ralph's iconic song with guest vocalist Annie Lennox. The single is available as a download from iTunes and other download sites. All proceeds go to Crisis to help support some of the thousands of people facing homelessness this Christmas. Crisis has made a You Tube video to promote the release.*

See Annie's website for a write up of the single and also quotes from Ralph and Jon Sparks, Chief Executive of Crisis.

To read more about Ralph Mctell, please click on  my four part interview I had with him back in 2014  here. John Beresford also has an excellent website with many news clips of Ralph.

If we could get Ralph to Number 1 with this super version and help many thousands of homeless people, wouldn't that be a Happy Christmas!
