Stand By Me

Mark has joined a number of artists – collectively ‘Whispering Bob’s All Stars’ – to make a special recording of ‘Stand By Me’. Brought together by Bob Harris of Old Grey Whistle Test fame to raise funds for Help Musicians. The single will be released on the 60th anniversary of the day the original was first recorded by Ben E. King on October 27th.
