I Did What I Did For Maria

Album: Welcome To My Music (1971)
  • This modern murder ballad was written by lyricist Peter Callendar (1939-2014) and composer Mitch Murray. Recorded by Tony Christie on MCA, it was arranged by Lew Warburton and backed by "Give Me Your Love Again." In the US it was released on the Kapp label.
  • This was the breakthrough single for Christie, and aside from the belated success of "(Is This The Way To) Amarillo" was as good as things ever got for him. >>
