In 2007, The Fivepenny Piece released a Christmas single. 'A Special Child' was a previously unreleased song with Lynda singing. Although the song is about 25 years old and was sung at Christmas concerts over the years, but had never been recorded until September 2007. It was never meant as a commercial release and was only available through the video sharing website YouTube. The song nevertheless received a good deal of positive feedback; and demand from fans for a 'proper' release - and more of the same!

So in 2008, the band decided to deliver. Starting with 'A Special Child' (the song - and the album title!), John and Lynda put together a complete Christmas album containing some of their favourite Christmas songs, a few Fivepenny Piece classics - and a handful of brand new Meeks-Radcliffe compositions, all performed in the Fivepenny Piece style.

You can now order A Special Child from the 5PP corner shop.
