VOTE for Jeff's next single ... maybe!

THE poll for Jeff's new single is closed! Here's how you voted for the 10 songs to choose from:


In top spot was Road Of No Return (32 per cent of votes). Jeff says it was a good choice! The song was written in 1969 and one of the many he had compiled in his portfolio as he was trying to build a career as a songwriter. It could have made it onto the first Christie album, but missed the cut.
   A great suggestion came from Victor Ramos, Alicante, Spain, who said Jeff should just release a new album with all 10 songs on it! I think we all will agree with that.
   Thanks to everyone who voted . Listen to the samples below.

Building Bridges
City Lights
Driving Down To Memphis
On The Other Side Of The Tracks
Troubled Times
Welcome Home
When I Was Young
Play Me No Sad Songs
Road Of No Return
