I especially liked Roses are Red and Eveything About You...Keep it up Benny we are all rooting for you here in Scotland..!!

David Gray

Love Roses are Red
Benny. Though I listened to your other CD Unpolished I found this one unusually different but excellent all the same. Roses are Red is definitely going to be a big smash hit, I hope you are pushing that song all the way because it is your pension!!!

Louise Carman

I Love It!!!
Favourite songs Dont be Sad. Song to Papa & Lift your Wings. Where is Benny playing live????

Killian Steele
