A Mid Tempo Ballad
I usually find that mid tempo ballads are best avoided. However I am prepared to make an exception for Arms of Mary by Sutherland Brothers and Quiver.
Who can argue with a song which was number one in Belgium, Netherlands AND Ireland!
It also appears on their 1975 album Reach for the Sky which I have actually bought twice , the first copy being too scratched to play properly. Regrettably the rest of the album is no great shakes.
The Sutherland Brothers are Iain and Gavin - Iain wrote Arms of Mary, Gavin wrote Sailing
Quiver appears to be the collective name for the other two members Willie Wilson and Tim Renwick
Apparently there is a German version "Ich seh' dich mit meinen Augen" by Rebekka, which I'm sure Walter and Dirk are familiar with.
