Christians (The) – Harvest for the World

You must remember these guys.  The fact was that they were three brothers with the family name Christian and a fourth member called Priestman – he also had the middle name Christian too, just for good measure.

This was their sixth single and was released on behalf of the Disasters Emergency Committee a group of British Charities, including the Red Cross and Save the Children Fund.  Apart from another charity single, Ferry Cross the Mersey, which reached number 1 in the UK singles chart, this was the band’s best performing single.  It reached number 8 in the chart in October 1988.

Of course you will probably know that Harvest for the World was written by and originally a hit for the Isley Brothers.  The b-side on The Christians version was another cover – this time it was Bob Marley’s Small Axe receiving the treatment.
