Re: Great early Burt - With Open Arms

Yes, a hit and a rarity at the same time! I bought a 45 of this purely on the names in parenthesis in a specialist second-hand record shop many moons ago, probably in the 80s, and as soon as I played it I recognized it, although it was never a chart success in the UK.
