About this deal

Like So Many, Andrew Gold Had A Long Lineage Of Work With Artists Such As Linda Ronstadt ( Arranger ) In The Early 1970s. Never Let Her Slip Away" is a song written by American musician Andrew Gold, who recorded it for his third album, All This and Heaven Too (1978).

As revealed in his liner notes for All This and Heaven Too, Gold wrote "Never Let Her Slip Away" about meeting actress and Saturday Night Live cast member Laraine Newman who was his girlfriend when he composed the song. From the moment I heard this song in 1978 at the Pleasant Ridge Community Pool (yes, I remember hearing it the first time) I was hooked. I mean just look at the joy these bearded-post-hippie well-dressed men have clapping at each other while turning in a circle. Dude, this song is not a huge hit in America, but it’s the most beautiful piece of music ever written.Never Let Her Slip Away" was also featured on the soundtrack of the film Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa (2013), as a personal favourite of the principal character. This version also reached number five in the United Kingdom and number two in Ireland, as Gold's original did.

Alan Jones from Music Week rated it four out of five, stating that "already achieving a surprisingly major degree of club crossover, it's very much in the KWS/ East Side Beat mould, and could even reach the very summit. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Queen frontman Freddie Mercury contributed harmony vocals to the song, as an uncredited background singer.
