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.
