GOOD music lasts. It resonates and it’s something special. This week’s chart topper is one such piece.

Will Wilde is our new entry, with his tribute to the legendary musician Peter Green, who passed away earlier this year.

It’s just one of 10 great tunes chosen by Chris Hillman from White Star Records for the Wokingham Love Music soundtrack, which features songs from bands and artists with some connection to Wokingham’s music scene.

There’s a range of musical styles to enjoy – all you have to do is log on and sit back.

You can listen for FREE via Spotify. There’s a special page set-up at bit.ly/wokinghamlovesmusic

Will Wilde – Love That Burns

Here’s a wonderful tribute to legendary blues musician and Fleetwood Mac founder Peter Green, who sadly passed away earlier this year.

It’s a song originally recorded on a very early Fleetwood Mac album, Mr. Wonderful, and this is an excellent new version recorded by contemporary blues artist Will Wilde for his ‘Bring It on Home’ album. Check out that guitar and harmonica.Will has visited us a few times, appearing at Wokingham Music Club and the Festival – www.willharmonicawilde.com
