Love Of The Common People by John Hurley and Ronnie Wilkins is a classic tune recorded by many artists, probably for the the first time by Waylon Jennings. Early recordings were made by reggae artists such as Eric Donaldson or Cecil Thomas. In 1983 it became one of Paul Young's most successful singles and appeared on the singer's 1983 album No Parlez. This version contained a short but fine trombone solo by Rico.
