The following post by Brenda on 1 Oct 2017 has received a phenomenal response with thousands of people clicking on to listen to Nothing Can Stand In The Way Of Love, from Bap's final album, Reckless Heart:
ANNIVERSARIES & SPECIAL MOMENTS
Today would have been Bap’s and my wedding anniversary.
This day last year we were still living in Marie Curie together; and as an anniversary present I got Bap a wireless speaker to listen to the final mixes of Reckless Heart.
It was a very special time as we listened together, and Bap was happy to know the album was going to be released.
Throughout October up till the 1st anniversary of Bap’s death on 1 Nov, I'm going to be posting every track from Reckless Heart. (They’re all great!) I think this is a good and fitting way to honour and remember Bap and the magic of his music.
