LISTEN: The Soul-Stirring Duet Mick McCarthy Recorded With Linda Martin

Ladies and gentlemen, the hour has come. For weeks, we have talked about it. In fact, we staked our entire credibility as a website on it. And today, we are happy to finally deliver the incredible, captivating duet that Mick McCarthy recorded with Linda Martin in back in 1991.

Linda Martin told us the back story behind the song a few weeks. Today she has shared the song with us.



While 'Big' Mick strikes us as a somewhat restrained singer, his trademark, Cohen-esque bass vocals would soothe the soul. (We'd love to see him cover I'm Your Man, for what it's worth)

Now the sound quality isn't the greatest. In fact, the song has proven quite difficult to digitise. It seems there are no digital versions of the song (before today). Ms Martin was kind enough to hold her phone up to the cassette player as the song played and record the song via her telephone device.

Balls.ie would like to genuinely thank Linda Martin for all of her help in helping us share this great song with the world.
