“Aint gonna give up on Love” is the new blues rock song recorded on the 28th December 2013.Ive been dying to record this one with Mike ever since Ive been performing it live on the electroacoustic at my local gig venues The Tower Of Song in Cotteridge and The Roadhouse in Stirchley.This number has acoustic guitar,les paul electric solo,bass guitar,drums and yours truly on vocals too.I love it…it rocks.Its a Ritchie Classic.” – Ritchie
“This song has come together really easily probably because Ritchie had chance to play it out a few times live. Some lovely moments in this track, my favourite being the end ad-libbed vocal section!” – Mr.Secret
